dc.description.abstractThe 1987 GDM and 1987 FEIS identified specific shorelines in Palm Beach County as critically eroded. The FDEP currently identifies the Ocean Ridge, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton segments as critically eroded beaches (FDEP, 2008). The Palm Beach County SPP increases the level of storm protection in the project area and feeds sand to beaches south of the project. As outlined in the countywide 1987 FEIS, planning objectives for this project include reducing expected storm-induced damage, reestablishing beaches suitable for current and future recreational beach activity demand, maintaining a suitable beach (sand) habitat for sea turtle nesting, supporting invertebrate and shorebird species, and maintaining recreational uses (including tourism). This EA excludes any additional planning objectives. This EA updates the 1994 SEIS with current information concerning the project activities and associated environmental evaluations performed since the 1994 SEIS. Specifically, this EA intends to 1.) Verify that impacts presented in the original project environmental documentation were accurately and adequately projected. 2.) Address the environmental implications of any unanticipated or unforeseen impacts. 3.) Address project impacts relative to any changed conditions or requirements (i.e., new endangered species, new environmental legislation, slight modifications or refinements to the project, etc.). 4.) Incorporate documentation of coordination with Federal and state agencies and others. Coordination should identify any significant environmental reasons why the project should not continue and provide opportunities to identify "new" (previously unidentified) environmental concerns. Comments from the following agencies are key to satisfactory coordination for the proposed project: US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).en_US
