I live next to a lagoon by the ocean and every year they dredge sand from it and put it on a barge, any idea where the sand goes?

    Sand is dredged and used for beach nourishment. Many popular beaches would not be very big without added sand. These beaches must be nourished about every 2-10 years since tidal activity redistributes the sand

    Nourished shorelines provide two primary benefits:
    increased area for recreation, and greater protection against coastal storms. Other tangible
    benefits include tourism revenues, restored wildlife habitats, enhanced public health and safety,
    increased coastal access, and reduced need for hard structures
