South Lake Worth Inlet


This project was completed in 2014.

Palm Beach County manages the South Lake Worth Inlet (Boynton Inlet) by removing sand (dredging) from the inlet's sand trap and placing it along the beach south of the Inlet every six years. In addition, the County operates the Inlet’s sand transfer plant which moves (bypasses) sand to beaches located south of the Inlet as needed throughout the year.
