Protecting Pensacola Beach from stormwater runoff

Steps are being taken to protect a portion of Pensacola Beach from storm water runoff.
   
A company was called in to create a new dune and plant sea oats on Fort Pickens road next to Margaritaville Beach Hotel.
   
The idea is to redirect rainwater and storm surge into a holding area where it will drain into the sand.

The area had quite a bit of standing water following the April flooding.
The project will only help with excess rain.

It will not protect the area against a tropical storm or hurricane storm surge.
