Abstract: The presently authorized Gasparilla Island Segment of the Lee County Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) project consists of maintaining approximately 2.8 miles of beach between Lee County, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) reference monument R-10.5 (R-11 plus a 1,200 foot long north extending taper) and R-24.5 (R-24 plus a 600 foot long south extending taper) (Figure A-1). The project includes a 20 foot extension of the 1995 mean high water (MHW) baseline as established by the 2000 General Reevaluation Report (GRR) (USACE, 2000). The authorized fill allows for the 20 foot extension and provides additional material (540,000 cubic yards) to offset erosive losses for seven years between renourishments.The purpose of this report is to determine if a 40-year extension of Federal participation in the Gasparilla Island Segment of the Lee County authorized project is economically justified. Initial project construction occurred in 2006. The additional 40 years would therefore allow for continued maintenance of the existing project through 2056. Section 934 analysis (see the Main Report for a complete discussion of Section 934 guidance) is a two-step process that consists of: (1) identification of current benefits of the existing project to determine if continued maintenance is economically justified and is consistent with current policies and (2) development of alternatives (size and timing) for nourishment to identify the most cost-effective nourishment scheme for the authorized project.
