Full Public Notice           Project Plans

CURRENT PROPOSED PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant is requesting authorization to perform beach nourishment activities that consists of the following: 

1)    A near-shore sand borrow area designated as the North Jetty Borrow Area;
2)    Modifications to the width of the previously authorized beach nourishment area that includes the dune corridor, beach berm, fore-slope, and seaward slope areas from 500 feet to a maximum of 800 feet; and
3)    Modifications to the length of the previously authorized beach nourishment area from 6 miles to 12 miles.

The volume of sand to be excavated from the North Jetty Borrow Area for beach nourishment is approximately 2.5 million cubic yards (mcy).  Material would be dredged with a cutter head dredge and will be transported to the nourishment area on the County beach through a temporary placed pipeline and booster system.  The North Jetty Borrow Area will measure 8,300-foot-long with varying width (1,000- to 2,500-foot-wide), totaling approximately 338 acres.

The increase in width and length of the proposed nourishment area is warranted in order to accommodate the increased size of the beach berm and dune corridor.  The increased size of these features is to provide increased protection and resiliency to the beach/dune system along the project site.

Any previous version of this permit has expired.  We are only reviewing the activities associated with this proposed permit application.
