Beach renourishment at Ocean Point should start

The idea of dump trucks rumbling around your neighborhood for weeks and dumping load after load of sand onto the nearby beach isn't appealing. It's understandable that some residents who live near Ocean Point in Port Royal Plantation are balking at the Town of Hilton Head Island's plan to truck in as much as 35,000 cubic yards of sand from a mine in Hardeeville to patch a 2,000 swath of eroding shoreline. The amount of sound equates to nearly 3,000 truckloads.
