Sunny Isles Beach Project on the Way

A delegation from the City of Sunny Isles Beach traveled recently to Tallahassee to attend the State Legislative Sessions and meet with representatives of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to discuss beach renourishment.

Last year, the Army Corps completed a sand renourishment project that brought 150,000 cubic yards of sand to the beach.

And this year, the Sunny Isles Beach is scheduled to receive an additional 80,000 cubic yards of sand from the private sector.

Renourishing and conserving the sand on our beach requires constant effort and coordination with different government agencies,” the city officials said in a release. “We discussed several upcoming efforts to help renourish our beach and combat sand erosion. The coming federal sand renourishment for Broward County will help long term as sea currents travel south and nourish our beach with sand.”

The City is in coordination with Miami-Dade County, FDEP and USACE in studying sand erosion mitigation techniques to be implemented after a scheduled 2021 sand renourishment project for the city.

The Army Corps is also analyzing the breakwaters at the north end of the city.
