Description: Technical note
Background: Beaches of suitable dimensions are an effective means of dissipating wave energy and, when they can be maintained to proper dimensions, afford protection for the adjacent upland, and are classed as shore-protection structures. Since protective beaches do not cause erosion problems of adjacent beaches, the Corps is using this alternative in developing solutions to these problems. Associated with the development of these solutions is the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements (EIS). This involves not only an evaluation of effects of the completed structure on the environment, but the effects of the construction operations as well.
