South Padre Island Beach Nourishment with Beneficial Used of Dredged Material
Although the need for emergency dredging of the Brazos-Santiago jetty channel in April of 2014 by the Corps precluded a beneficial use event in FY2014, a “regular” maintenance dredging event is anticipated around October-November 2014, on which the GLO would partner with the Corps for the nourishment of the Gulf-facing beach along South Padre Island at Isla Blanca County Park and at the City of South Padre Island with dredge material. Annual maintenance re- nourishment is a needed benefit in order to counter the ongoing erosion along the City’s Gulf-facing beach.
