With predictions of further coastal erosion today, Monday, July 27 and into tomorrow, July 28, authorities are watching Jimmys Beach closely.
An estimated six metres of foreshore was stripped from the coastal erosion hotspot within 24 hours earlier this month.
"Wind and swell direction resulting from the current east coast low weather event could result in further erosion at Jimmys Beach," MidCoast Council coastal management co-ordinator, Andrew Staniland said.
Although sand has been moved onto the most critical part of the beach since the last storm, there has not been enough time between events to restore the full sand buffer.
He said when storm events occured close together, such as the during the last 10 day period, renourishment could not start fast enough to assist.
"Erosion at Jimmys Beach has long been identified and managed by council," he said.
"The current situation of two events close to each other is identified in the coastal zone management plan, highlighting how vulnerable this section of our coast is."
For several years, council has successfully provided a sand buffer through its sand renourishment program to prevent the erosion of The Boulevarde, endorsed by community as the most effective measure at the time, ahead of hard engineering solutions.
"Our community is starting to see the impact from the increasing frequency of these erosion events, and the increasing costs required for these buffering measures to be effective."
