USA: Palm Beach Island to Be Beach Renourishment Model

Palm Beach Island to Be State Model for Beach Renourishment

South Florida beach renourishment program will get a new plan to avoid frequent sand storms in these areas, according to SunSentinel.

Florida Department of Environmental Protection presented a plan to make Palm Beach Island a model of cooperative beach projection.

Danielle Fondren, chief of the environmental agency’s Bureau of Beaches and Coastal Systems stated: “We want to manage the beach as a regional resource, as opposed to project by project, or permit by permit.”

The draft of the agreement should be ready this summer, with a final one in December.

After it is fully devised, this program will attempt to coordinate beach renourishment projects, funding, the dredging of offshore sand, the maintenance of anti-erosion structures and other activities to protect beaches across 15.7 miles of shoreline.

If it proves to be successful, the program will be applied on other beaches as well.
