Title: Sarasota County, Florida, Hurricane and Storm Damage Reduction Project, Lido Key : Feasibility Report with Environmental Assessment
Authors: United States. Army. Corps of Engineers. Jacksonville District.
Keywords: Shore protection
Beach nourishment
Sarasota County (Fla.)
Publisher: United States. Army. Corps of Engineers. Jacksonville District.
Abstract: The recommended plan of improvement would provide initial restoration and periodic nourishment of an 80 foot beach berm at elevation +5 ft NGVD over 1.56-miles of shoreline, with a groin field at the southern limits of the project. Periodic nourishment, accomplished at five-year intervals, would optimize net primary benefits over the 50-year life of the project. Borrow material would be obtained from a site approximately 9 miles offshore. Based on October, 2002 prices, estimated first cost of the plan is $12,632,200 of which $7,769,5000 would be Federal while $4,862,700 would be non-Federal. Average annual benefits and costs based on an interest rate of 6 1/8 percent are estimated at $4,319,900 and $1,954,700 respectively with a resulting benefit-cost ratio of 2.2. The recommendations contained herein reflect the information available at this time and current policies governing formulation of individual projects. They do not reflect program and budgeting priorities inherent in the formulation of a national civil works construction program nor the perspective of higher review levels within the Executive Branch. Consequently, the recommendations may be modified before they are transmitted to the Congress as proposals for authorization and! or implementation of funding. NOTE: This document contains a 2004 addendum that was added after the original publication of the document in 2002.
