Camp Ellis

There’s a lot less of this little beach community than there once was, a reminder that one should not buy property next to a jetty or build a town on the land that often accretes very rapidly after a jetty is built!

In the spirit of throwing good money after bad, the Corps is considering building breakwaters to somehow prevent the need for annual rebuilding of the seawall. Not that there aren’t plenty of examples of poor public policy in other arenas, but it’s reassuring to know that coastal erosion management provides some of the best case studies.
