U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Erosion Response Feasibility Study
The project was a continuation from cycles 2, 3, and 4 and was partially funded in partnership with Galveston County. The Corps conducted scientific and engineering studies designed to understand the erosion processes affecting the upper Texas coast from Sabine pass to San Luis Pass and developed applicable erosion response project alternatives. During this cycle, the Corps' Engineering Research and Development Center conducted a peer review of sand source investigation findings and developed a report on the sand source investigation, future without project conditions, analysis and a project management plan. However, the impacts of Hurricane Ike changed the future without project conditions. Due to limited financial resource, the county and USACE agreed to suspend work on the study to determine if pursing large-scale project thorough the USACE process was a viable approach.
