  American Corp of Engineers has released their plan for beach re-nourishment coquina reef areas.

 

Just recently, the ACE (American Corp of Engineers)  has released it’s ‘’final plan’’ for the mid reach (the 7.8 miles of beach from south end of PAFB to north Indialantic).

This section of beach has been spared the type of large-scale dredge-and-fill ‘’beach renourishment’’ projects that have ruined surfing and fishing up and down our coast. Because of the unique coquina reef which is a Federally protected fish habitat, the ACE has had to formulate a plan ‘’they say’’ will only bury a few acres of reef. 

Comments are being accepted by paul.e.stodola@usace.army.mil of ACE through January 30.  I personally don't understand why this $100,000,000 project is being recommended when we currently have as much sand as we've seen in the 15 years we've lived here. Forum Discussion.
