AbstractThis paper describes the installation of and results obtained with the sand pumping plant located on the north jetty of South Lake Worth Inlet, Florida. This pumping plant was installed in order to pump drifting beach sand past the littoral drift barrier formed by the creation of South Lake Worth Inlet with its protecting jetties. It was anticipated that the pumping of the sand would relieve the erosion of the shore south of the inlet and cut down on the rate of shoaling in Lake Worth at the inner end of the inlet channel. A discussion of the results obtained with the installation is also included in the paper.
