In cases of natural disaster and emergency, Stewart Materials immediately supplies needed materials to areas throughout Florida. The applications for emergency materials are full spectrum. Beach renourishment, however, is the application of most vital concern in the days and weeks immediately following a catastrophic weather event.
2012’s super storm Hurricane Sandy was the second costliest hurricane in United States history. Sandy impacted the entire eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine. Stewart Materials was an unseen asset in the weeks and months following the storm, supplying sand for beach renourishment, meeting needs in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties. Nowhere was Stewart Materials more visible than in Martin County, where it supplied nearly 11,000 tons of emergency sand to protect MacArthur Boulevard and restore a vital protective dune at Bathtub Beach.
