Surfside Beach Emergency Beach Nourishment

Summary

This project, along with Project #1471, is part of an emergency erosion response strategy to address the critical erosion of the gulf-facing shoreline adjacent to Beach Drive at the Village of Surfside. Previously-approved FEMA Public Assistance funds to mitigate damages from the effects of Hurricane Rita will be combined with CEPRA funds and anticipated federal funds to renourish the pedestrian beach adjacent to Beach Drive, which has suffered historical erosion and loss of elevation due to the effect of ongoing erosion and various tropical storm events. The renourishment is also required to facilitate the stabilization and protection from further damage of the engineered rock revetment constructed under CEPRA Cycle 5 as project #1379, which has been impacted due to the effects of Hurricane Ike and subsequent high tides. Stabilization of the revetment is crucial to continued protection of Beach Drive and public and private infrastructure and property.
