In the spring of 2002, a project was completed for island protection, creation, and enhancement near White Point within the northwest portion of Nueces Bay, Texas..... The four primary purposes of the project were to decrease erosion, provide additional nesting area, provide additional hard substrate, and, if possible, restore islands that had completely eroded. .... The final design included the protection of five existing islands with geotextile tubes, the creation of a new 3-acre island using sandy material dredged from the bay, and the creation of 1,500 ft of hard substrate through the construction of a rock revetment around most of the new island.
