As you are probably aware, the same sort of ultimately fruitless and ecologically damaging beach nourishment is done constantly to the expensive beach real estate along the over developed coasts of the Carolinas. Our federal and state taxes are wasted by subsidizing those who foolishly choose to "literally" build expensive houses and busineses on the shifting sands.

There are local scientists and conservationists who have criticized the damage and futility of these actions, but of course their pleas are generally ignored by the local business communities,developers and government officials who are too absorbed with short term economic growth to consider the long term consequences of their activities.
