Charlotte County may soon propose a rock jetty at the southern tip of Manasota Key to help stem erosion and maintain Stump Pass. That’s the preferred option of county officials, who have been given a number of options by a consultant to help slow the filling in of Stump Pass and maintain Gulf beaches. They have the support of relevant state officials, according to the Englewood Sun. The plan has also identified offshore sand sources to renourish the north end of Knight Island or wherever else sand is needed for eroded beaches. While it would take nearly $25 million to build a jetty, the county will spend more than $32 million in the next 25 years to continue is dredging program without anything to slow the southward sand migration.
