Rescue Ocean City!!

Problem

Ocean City and the Assateague islands are in grave danger of washing away.

Solution

Sediment and sand is deposited on the beach of northern Assateague Island through pipes and then spread out by bulldozers, extending the shoreline into the ocean.

Prevention

Sediment and sand could be replaced with something heavier such as chromite sand so it does not wash away so quickly. Chromite sand is twice as heavy than sand, meaning it will stay longer.
