Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to discharge approximately 65,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand along 3,300 linear feet of beach frontage in the City of Jamaica Beach for the purpose of increasing shoreline stability and reducing erosion.  The nourishment template is 200 feet wide, extending from the vegetation line at the north limit to the approximate -1.5-foot contour seaward, including 11.27 acres seaward of the High Tide Line.  The applicant will obtain beach quality sand from local upland and submerged sources.  The methods for removal of sand, subsequent transport, and placement within the project area will include:  the use of trucks to haul the sand excavated from the upland borrow sites, using a backhoe or other excavation technique; if a part of a larger nourishment project, sand may be delivered via temporary offshore pipeline and placed directly on the beach.  Once on the site, the beach quality sand will be distributed to fill the appropriate area using other heavy equipment (e.g. bulldozers, backhoes, etc.).  Biological monitors will be onsite during nourishment activities and sand will not be placed on existing beach vegetation, dunes, or dune vegetation.
