Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to perform mechanized beach maintenance associated with the removal of Sargassum and other vegetation based debris along approximately 25 miles of beach frontage.  Removal will be conducted with tractor-towed three point agricultural rakes, tractor-towed beach cleaning/sand sifting machines, front end loaders, and/or other bladed machinery.  These activities will involve the discharge of fill material due to more than minimal incidental fallback into the Gulf of Mexico.  The Sargassum and other debris will be relocated on the upper beach in non-jurisdictional areas near the base or south toe of dunes to naturally decompose.
