Description: Technical note
Problem: The Corps of Engineers is involved in beach restoration as an alternative to or in conjunction with structural methods of halting beach erosion. The use of dredged material for beach restoration is beneficial in two ways. A disposal site is provided and the material helps restore an eroding beach. However, the Corps must assess the impact of this nourishment on beach ecology and the additional stress it may create on the ecosystem. See CETN-V-3, CETN-V-5, and CETN-V-7 for results of similar studies on the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic coast, and Pacific coast, respectively.
