Sandwich is seeking bids from contractors that can move 15,000 to 18,000 cubic yards of donated sand from Bourne to Town Neck Beach.

The sand deposit is the second such gift from Bourne, which finds itself in the enviable position of having a surplus after completing a dredging project.

Just a thought, but the copious amount of rock just east of the canal could be used as a barrier as well in front of some of those homes. Storms have a little more difficulty moving rock than sand and it's more readily available than the sand from Bourne.
