Flagler County Shore Protection Project (I)

Investigations (I)

Congressional Districts: 6


Flagler County is located on the northeast coast of Florida approximately midway between the Florida/Georgia state line and Cape Canaveral. The county is bounded to the north by St. Johns County and to the south by Volusia County.
The Authorized Plan is the National Economic Development (NED) plan, consisting of a 10-foot dune and beach profile extension in Reach C, between Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) monuments R80 and R94 in central Flagler Beach. The Recommended Plan covers 2.6 miles of shoreline in length and mainly prevents damage to SR-A1A.
Construction of the Authorized Plan involves a sand borrow source located seven miles offshore of the project site in Federal waters. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has sole jurisdiction over the identified sand resources for this project under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, and is a cooperating agency on this project. The plan will most likely be constructed with a dredge and land-based equipment typically used for beach nourishment projects. Initial construction will require approximately 330,000 cubic yards (cy) of sand and each periodic nourishment event will require approximately 320,000 cy. The renourishment interval is expected to be approximately 11 years, equaling 4 renourishment events in addition to initial construction over the 50 year period of Federal participation.
