A temporary solution to part of Stockton’s erosion woes is underway, with Hunter Water building a large sand container seawall.

The structure will have 17 sand containers placed along the face of the site.

It’s expected to be 100-metres in length once complete.

It’s designed to be a medium-term solution, while a long term strategy is developed by Newcastle Council and the State Government.

Major storms in January last year revealed an old rubbish dump on land owned by Hunter Water.
