WITH the recurring rounds of storms, locals believed they were watching a losing battle at Jimmys Beach with the large five metre South East swell smashing the already eroded beach.
However as pictured, the excavator expertly operated by “Steve” worked hard and fast in the wet and windy conditions, distributing sand along exposed points.
MidCoast Council praised the work of the contractors who safely continued to work throughout the East Coast lows.
The dredge also handled the swell and the Sand Transfer Station was pumping with only a small amount of sand lost.
The Council continues to monitor the area to continue to deliver more sand to renourish the popular beach.
