Flagler County, in coordination with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will host a workshop followed by a public hearing to address the creation of an Erosion Control Line along the upcoming 2.8 mile Army Corps of Engineers project within the city limits of Flagler Beach.

State law requires the establishment of an Erosion Control Line before the construction of a beach renourishment project that places sand seaward of the Mean High Water Line (average of the high water elevation over a period of time), such as with the Army Corps project – scheduled to begin in May 2020 between South 6th and South 28th streets.

“This sand placement will be the initial construction of the federal shore protection project that will slightly widen and subsequently maintain the existing beach and dunes conditions,” said County Engineer Faith Alkhatib.

The Erosion Control Line in this instance will be established at the Mean High Water Line as surveyed in July 2019. It will fix the boundary between the upland property owners – regardless of future beach erosion or accretion – and the submerged land owned by the State of Florida.

Staff from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Army Corps of Engineers, and I will be at the meeting to explain the Erosion Control Line, answer questions, and take public comments,” Alkhatib said. “Maps of the Erosion Control Line will be available at the workshop and public hearing.”

The workshop and public hearing will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on October 22 in the Commission Chambers of the Government Services Building, 1769 E. Moody Boulevard, Bunnell, FL.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
