Rye beach sand management works

Reports of discoloured sand on Rye beach are a result of sand management work at the Rye boat ramp. Mornington Peninsula Shire have permission to undertake this work. The sand and water pumped onto the beach may be discoloured (grey or brown) but will soon change to the colour of beach sand after being exposed to the sun and air.
