Purpose: The Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects (MCCP) Program funds work units that evaluate the performance of projects in their design environment. The objectives are to verify the design methodology and make recommendations to the Districts that contribute to reduced operation and management costs. Conclusions regarding the effectiveness of a design or recommendations for future maintenance practices should be based on observations. The complexity of the physical processes and the lack of available measurements in the coastal zone usually require each work unit to obtain a data base as part of its study plan. A detailed monitoring plan is essential to obtain reliable and useful data. The monitoring plan is an integrated process that includes defining data needs, developing an analysis plan, specifying functional constraints, selecting a data capture scheme, and designing a measurement system.
