The Coastal Texas Protection & Restoration Feasibility Study – also known as the “Coastal Texas Study” – is a comprehensive study to examine the feasibility of construction projects for coastal storm risk management and ecosystem restoration along the Texas coast.
Throughout the study process, public feedback is critical to understanding the needs and opportunities along the Texas coast. The intent of the public comment period is to receive ideas and concerns from the citizens of Texas. Constituent feedback is a vital part of this process. The Texas GLO and USACE remain committed to ensuring the voices of the people of Texas are heard.
The revised Coastal Texas Study Draft Proposal is available for viewing and open for a 45-day public review and comment period beginning on October 30, 2020, and ending on December 14, 2020. View and download the report here.
