Abstract: The Fire Island Inlet to Montauk Point, New York Coastal Storm Risk Management Project is designed to identify a long-term solution to manage the risk of coastal storm damages along the densely populated and economically valuable south shore of Long Island, New York in a manner which balances the risks to human life and property and restores the natural coastal processes that have been impacted by past development of the barrier island and while maintains coastal biodiversity. The Recommended Plan includes a combination of: (1) inlet modifications (continuation of authorized navigation projects, dredging, downdrift placement of dredged material, placement of dune and berm, and monitoring); (2) nonstructural measures (primarily building retrofits, with limited relocations and buyouts); (3) breach response for barrier islands; (4) beach and dune fill with renourishment: up to 30 years, approximately every 4 years; (5) sediment management; (6) groin modifications; (7) coastal process features; (8) adaptive management; and (9) integration of local land use regulations and management.
