There’s a new inlet/outlet added at Pleasure House Point

Here’s a couple photos of the installation of the new inlet/outlet to the wetland. Does it flow during the exchange of the tide?

The answer to the question from Mike Moore P&R:

The pipe was installed in the washout that occurred this previous Halloween. It was installed higher than the normal ebb and flow tide. It isn’t to be an inlet but to allow water to pass through during extreme tide events without the berm going with it. We will monitor the berm and the pipe as we are sure we will need to add more sand and pack. Please feel free to let me know if you see it failing or erosion issues. Thank you.

Thanks for the scoop Mike!
