Abstract: Miami-Dade County’s traditional offshore sand sources for beach renourishment have been depleted. A placement volume of approximately 3,600,000 cubic yards of sand is needed on the beaches over the next 10 years (23 years for the 2.5-mile Sunny Isles segment) for renourishment of the Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection (BEC&HP) Project for the remaining period of Federal participation. The Main Segment’s period of Federal participation ends in 2025. The Sunny Isles Segment’s period of Federal participation ends in 2038. The purpose of this Environmental Assessment (EA) is to review the environmental effects of utilizing sand source alternatives which have been determined to meet the requirements for future renourishments throughout the remaining period of Federal participation in the Dade County, BEC&HP. This environmental effects analysis shall be combined with the economic analysis in the Limited Re-evaluation Report prepared by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to recommend a sand source plan for the project.
