SEA ENCROACHMENT AT HOKITIKA,

Hokitjka, April 80

The position on the seafront continues to cause considerable alarm. The spring tides are now receding, and have been remarkably smooth, otherwise the disaster of a .fortnight ago would have been repeated with worse results.

The sea continues -to encroach on Revell street daily, and during the last few tides considerable erosion has taken place, low water mark being upwards of sixty feet closer in shore with very deep water along tbo sea front. Protective works are being carried on by the Public Works Department, and comprfs driving a series of piles eight feet apart sfcjaighfc out to sea, these beinj partly planked. Very slow pro gress is being made, only abon' twenty piles having been driven 10 to 15. feet deep in the last ten days. Considerable comment has been made on the slow progress and the manner in which the danger is being grappled with.

, A borough official gives it as bis opinion that unless more urgent steps are taken to secure a sea front, if rough weather eventuates, greater damage is bound to'be caused.
