Abstract: The Brevard County General Re-evaluation Report, including Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, presents the results of a hurricane and storm damage reduction study for the 7.8 mile Mid-Reach segment of Brevard County, Florida. The goal of the Brevard County Mid-Reach project is to reduce the damages caused by erosion and coastal storms to shorefront structures along the Mid-Reach study area. The District supports the non-Federal sponsor’s locally preferred plan and recommends the plan as the Recommended Plan. The plan consists of a small-scale beach fill varying from a 0-foot to 20-foot extension of the mean high water line plus advanced nourishment to maintain the design fill volume. The approximate volume of sand to be placed, as calculated from the 2008 survey, includes an initial design fill of 445,000 cubic yards plus an advanced nourishment fill of 210,000 cubic yards for a total fill of 655,000 cubic yards at initial construction. Placement of the sand is anticipated to impact approximately 3.0 acres of nearshore rock hardbottom by direct and indirect cover of which 1.4 acres is expected to include some temporal variation as the advanced nourishment erodes. The mitigation quantity is calculated from the UMAM ratio of 1.6 mitigation acres required for every acre of natural rock impacted, resulting in a mitigation of 4.8 acres.
