Beach renourishment is high on the priority list for our representatives in Washington. Congressman Mike McIntyre has asked for more $6 million in federal renourishment money for Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties.

In addition to the tourism impact, Hagan and McIntyre are pushing the point that healthy beaches also play a role in protecting the coast from hurricanes.
