The Problem:

Ocean City faces a devastating issue that might destroy the beach we love. The issue is that the beaches are eroding. More and more sand is becoming ocean. If Ocean City is hit with a category 3 hurricane or higher hits the coast, Ocean City will not be there any more!


A solution to the problem of the beaches being eroded is putting up groins and jetties. These are many large rocks that are placed in a line that runs perpendicular to the shoreline. Jetties protect waterways from extreme water changes. These methods will prevent erosion because it stop the sea from pushing up toward the sand. The groins and jetties separate the sea from the sand therefore stop the erosion.
