Dune Restoration and Management

The City of South Padre Island is committed on completing a continuous dune line that will help preserve and restore our beaches after storms as well as provide habitat for local flora and fauna while providing natural infrastructure protection for the island.

Superstorm Sandy showed the whole country the value of a restored and maintained beaches and dune line in protecting coastal infrastructure and communities. A collection of recent news stories on the storm, its aftermath, and recovery can be found at the ASBPA Newsroom or by clicking here.
