No. I'm not this stupid. There was no pressure in these pipes when I wandered by. Jacksonville Beach is pumping sand from 8 miles offshore onto their beach. The hurricanes and winter nor'easters* erode the sand and, every 5 years or so they do this.
Oddly, the company doing this pumping is from the Great Lakes, not either coast.
*As some wit once said "For those of you that don't live on the East Coast of the US, a nor'easter is a big friggin' storm."
