The South Australian Government has announced a new investment in both metropolitan and regional coasts with:
- Additional sand, including sourcing around 500,000 cubic metres of external sand from outside of Adelaide for the metropolitan coastline ($20 million).
- Building a sand recycling pipeline from Semaphore to West Beach, as well as sand dune restoration and revegetation in partnership with local councils and community groups ($28.4 million).
- Support for regional coasts to help repair, restore and sustain them in partnership with local councils ($4 million).
The State Government is also restoring lost seagrass, working with local councils to limit damaging stormwater run-off from entering Gulf St Vincent, research and development and building a new reef. Find out more here.
