Sasco Hill Beach Shore and Bank Protection Project

Sasco Hill Beach

Sasco Hill Beach in Fairfield extends eastward from the breakwater at the east side of the Southport Harbor entrance to Kensie Point.

The project involved:

  • Constructing a 400-foot-long groin at the western end of the widened beach area. This was completed in May 1958.
  • Widening about 900 feet of the central portion of the beach to 100 feet by the direct placement of sand. This was completed in July 1958.

The total cost of the project was $71,300.
