Beach nourishment held up by Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, FEMA surveys

Once every 10 years or so, Navarre Beach goes through beach nourishment, a process in which sand, lost through erosion, is replaced through other sources. This can help widen the beach, making it more resistant to the effects of erosion and storms. The last time Navarre Beach went through this process was 2016 and it was due to happen again in 2026. That was until Hurricane Sally’s impact bumped up the timetable. Now, nearly three years after Sally hit the Gulf Coast, the beach has still not been restored.
