Point a proving ground for balls

A BADLY eroded Munna Point would be the perfect proving ground for the concrete balls that Sunshine Coast Council has overlooked as a solution to the restoration of Noosa Spit dog beach.That is according to North Shore resident and river watch advisory committee member Malcolm Hunt, who brought a range of parabolic concrete balls to the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre last Friday to shore up support for his suggested alternative.Council tender period expired last month for the complex $3 million spit rehabilitation using a submerged curved structure incorporating sand filled geotextile mega containers.The preferred scheme calls for dredging and associated foreshore nourishment, and a training wall and more geotextile containers to form groynes to stabilise the upstream beach.Mr Hunt told NPA members that a lot cheaper solution would be to use 200 reef balls that would cost about $300 each but last 500 years or beyond as opposed to the geotextile bags whose lifespan was a couple of decades.so easy to make. You can see the huge mass in the bot michael jordan tom of them, Mr Hunt said of the balls.one there is only a mid range one and that 700kg. No current going to shift that.lot of sand will build up through that because you only have to throw a beer bottle in the river and it will fill up with sand.becomes something that weighs over a tonne once it fills with sand.Mr Hunt said the geoxtextile bags used to stop erosion at Cotton Tree near the Maroochy River mouth had started to break up after eight years and were needing repair.spent 20 years pulling bags out of the river and now they going to start chucking bigger ones in, he said.we are going to have a trial, because they doing the dog beach and council said they will do an offset so we might use the smaller reef balls for planting mangroves.wants to correct some serious erosion at Munna Point caravan park with broken pipes, old truck springs and besser blocks with steel pipes and undermined coconut michael jordan trees.looks terrifically ugly.
