Over this monitoring period, Reach 7 lost a net volume of 414,847 CY, with the greatest losses occurring in the central portion of the reach. The most recent renourishment of the Phipps/Reach 7 section of the shoreline occurred between January and April 2016, during which time 1,022,318 CY of beach-quality material was placed. This loss is still partly attributable to equilibration of the material placed within the reach.

Gains have occurred throughout the reach and are attributable to both the 2016 nourishment effort and a residual volume of sand remaining in the reach from the 2006 nourishment event.
