Miles and miles of fencing

The beach renourishment does not end with the depositing the sand dredged from the Merrimack. Afterwards, crews worked on the installation of hundreds of yards of snow fencing – a special kind of fence designed to help keep the sand in place. This fence is certainly not the impenetrable – wind storms and powerful waves have washed many away. However, given the winter months are coming, these snow fences are designed to help accumulate the snow and thus the sand, behind them. Ultimately, dune grasses need to be planted within this area.
