C3 action. Initially, the sections were cleaned by removing timber and plant and non-vegetal debris,

which were particularly abundant due to storm happened in early November, part of which were reused

for the creation of the dunes.

SELC worked on the sediment necessary to create the dunes using an excavator.

SELC decided in three cases to join two sections, creating a single one. This increased work’s area.

The sections involved an area of ​​1,634 square meters, plus the two sections to be built in 2019.
