Why don’t they have to recapture the sand used to sandblast the Banks Channel bridge?

According to N.C. Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Abbott, the Banks Channel bridge in Wrightsville Beach is being sandblasted and undergoing structural repairs by a contractor hired by the department. He said most of the sand used in the sandblasting should be landing on the contractor’s work platform where it can be collected and taken away, and there should be no effect on the depth of the channel.

    What about all the old paint that falls into the channel? Surely the work platforms won’t catch all of the debris from sandblasting.
