I think if you line the pier with plastic, that would to a large extent negate the effect of the sand on dampening vibration. I believe the sand would have to be in direct contact with the pier wall to be effective. The plastic being very slippery, would allow vibrations to propagate.

An option is to line the inside of the pier with a plastic trash bag (or even two) before adding the sand slowly. Pick the thickest bag you can find, e.g. 3 mil, to reduce the probability of tearing the plastic.
