USACE to Host Shore Protection Meetings

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, will host a series of Dade County shore protection public meetings over the next two weeks.

The public is invited to provide comments on the draft Environmental Assessment and draft Finding of No Significant Impact for the Identification of Alternative Sand Sources for the Remaining Period of Federal Participation, Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project.

USACE plan recommends utilizing sand from borrow sources in federal waters outside of Miami-Dade County, including one source in Martin County and one in St. Lucie County.

The plan allows for upland sources to be used for smaller renourishment projects such as those with requirements of less than 200,000 cubic yards. Two small Miami-Dade County sand sources, Bakers Haulover Inlet ebb shoal and Lummus Park will continue to be used.

The public comment period on the draft Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact begins Friday, July 31 and closes Friday, October 2, 2015.

USACE will host three public meetings:

  • Miami-Dade County:  Tuesday, August 25, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.at the Miami Beach Commission Chambers, 1700 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139
  • Martin County:  Tuesday, August 26, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.at the Jupiter Island Commission Chambers, 2 Bridge Road, Hobe Sound, Florida, 33455
