Abstract: St. Lucie County is located on the south‐central east coast of Florida (Figure 1‐1). The county is bounded to the north by Indian River County and to the south by Martin County. St. Lucie County has approximately 22 miles of sandy shoreline located on a coastal barrier island that varies in width from approximately 400 feet to 1.5 miles. The St. Lucie County shoreline is subject to erosion caused by both tropical and extra‐tropical storms as well as other natural shoreline processes. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of providing Federal Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) measures to the southern portion of the St. Lucie County shoreline. Four study reaches have been identified for St. Lucie County. The full study area extends from Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Range Monuments R‐77 to R‐115 (Martin County Line) (Figure 1‐1): 1.) North Hutchinson Island (NHI)– R‐77 to R‐80 2.) Power Plant Area (PP) – R‐80 to R‐90 3.) Narrows of Hutchinson Island (NH) – R‐90 to R‐98 4.) South Hutchinson Island (SHI) – R‐98 to R‐115
