More Money for South Padre Island Beach Renourishment
The city of South Padre Island is about to receive $$1.25 million from the Coastal Erosion Planning and Response Act (CEPRA) Grant for the city’s beach renourishment project.
This was announced by Reuben Treviño, Coastal Resource and Parks Administrator, following last week’s Shoreline Task Force meeting.
According to the Texas General Land Office (GLO), the purpose of the CEPRA Program is to implement coastal erosion response projects and related studies to reduce the effects of and to understand the processes of coastal erosion as it continues to threaten public beaches, natural resources, coastal development, public infrastructure, and public and private property.
Under CEPRA, the GLO implements erosion response projects and studies through collaboration and a matching funds partnership with federal, state, and local governments, non-profit organizations and other potential project partners.
