dc.description.abstractThe Jupiter/Carlin segment of the Palm Beach County Shore Protection Plan would nourish a 1.1-mile stretch of beach south of Jupiter Inlet between FDEP monuments R-13 and R-19. The proposed beach fill profile consists of a 30-foot berm using beach quality sand from an offshore borrow area in the Atlantic Ocean. One sand source, “Jupiter Carlin A,” was identified by the non-Federal sponsor as the preferred source of material for beach nourishment. Palm Beach County collected 29 vibracores within the proposed sand source in 1995 and 1996 and performed grain size analyses on selected samples. Based on historical data, the thickness of potential beach-compatible material ranges from 4 to 20 feet, with an average thickness of more than 10 feet. Conservative dredge cut depths and a 15-year-old bathymetric survey were used to estimate an available volume of approximately 5 million cubic yards. This should allow for plenty of material in the sand source for the proposed beach fill. Subsequent beach nourishments may utilize permitted upland sand mines, or may continue to use an offshore sand source. There are several permitted existing sand mines in south Florida that could be used to nourish the Jupiter Carlin beach. Based on information provided by these mines, USACE has determined that they contain sufficient sand reserves for the life of the project.en_US
