MBNMS Announces Details on CRSMP Plan (USA)

Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) has announced a tender for the development of a Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan (CRSMP) for the Santa Cruz Littoral cell, from Moss Landing northwards to the Santa Cruz-San Mateo County line.

This CRSMP will be developed in order to restore and maintain coastal beaches and other critical areas of sediment deficit, reduce the proliferation of coastal armoring structures such as seawalls and revetments, restore coastal sandy habitats throughout the mentioned area, enhance public safety and coastal access, and sustain recreation and tourism.

The period of performance will be 12 months from the date of award.

BACKGROUND

MBNMS provides protection of marine resources through research, education and resource management to foster public understanding and stewardship of this nationally significant marine area.

Services will include project coordination, conducting stakeholder meetings, developing a draft and then final plan, and coordinate development of a governance structure for implementation of the CRSMP.

The coordination and plan development will reduce potential threats to coastal structures and communities from coastal erosion.
