Sand studies begin at Sant Sebastià beach in Sitges

On Wednesday work started on monitoring the dynamics of the coastline of Sant Sebastià beach in Sitges, to study the changing elements that make this beach gain or lose sand throughout the year.

This is one of the agreements of the Coastal Management Board, promoted by the Sitges Town Council, with the aim of involving different public and private sectors to address the current situation and challenges facing the beaches and the rest of the municipality’s coastline.

The initiative aims to evaluate the arrival of posidonia (marine plants) and how this can help the sand not leaving. It also aims to identify when the beach runs out of sand, as is the case this week due to storms from the east.

This is the second project of the Coastal Management Board, after the one carried out last month for prioritising how to bring sand back to the Bassa Rodona beach, one of the most damaged at the moment.

The recent storms have broken the concrete blocks that covered the old waste water pipes and work is already underway with the Coastal Service to remove them. Another action that has been discussed is removing the promenade wall, and the possibility of adding sand.
