To call Monument Beach a busy place right now would be an understatement. Heavy equipment and a steady flow of sand and water, disgorged onto the beach from an underground/underwater pipe, are testament to the work underway to dredge Little Bay.

A large pipe jutting from beneath the sand spews a continuous gusher of sand and water into a large pit dug into the beach. At the same time, an excavator works nonstop piling up all the material expelled by the pipe, loading it onto a truck that dumps it into yet another pit. That is just what is happening on land.
