Broward County Segment III Beach Renourishment 2018-2019


 

Broward County Shore Protection Project includes placing sand on the beaches of Mizell-Johnson State Park, Dania Beach, Hollywood and Hallandale, and is 100 percent federally funded via the Flood Control and Coastal Emergency Act (Public Law 84-99) and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-123). This repair places approximately 125,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand above the mean high water (MHW) level to avoid water quality impacts while the design of the full construction template is underway. The design of the full construction template will involve placing 1 million cubic yards of sand, but will require environmental coordination and permitting that will take two years.

The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, January 9 at 6 p.m. at Anne Kolb Nature Center's Mangrove Hall, 751 Sheridan Street, Hollywood, Florida, 33019.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers received disaster funds provided in Public Law 115-123, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. The act provides nearly $17.4 billion to the Corps for disaster recovery. Jacksonville District received $3.348 billion for long-term recovery investments in its area of responsibility, which includes Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
