Figure 5. Nourishment built a berm out from Casino Point in Wells. After the slurry was dewatered, bulldozers formed an artificial terrace. The elevation of the "fill" was marked on the Casino Point seawall with a red paint line. A visit to this location will show the paint line in relation to the current beach elevation. Since Casino Point is a headland, sand was dispersed away from it by wave action toward the beaches to the north and south.
