NORFOLK, Va. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Miami-Dade County, its nonfederal sponsor, will host a pair of online public meetings this month on the Miami-Dade Back Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibility Study.
The public is invited to learn more about the study and its findings at the identical virtual sessions, scheduled for 5-7 p.m. June 9 and 1-3 p.m. June 11. USACE staff will be available to answer questions.
