The Corps of Engineers constructs and issues permits for the construction of coastal structures such as groins, jetties, and piers in the coastal zone. Potential impacts on local beach fauna by the construction and presence of these structures need to be determined to aid coastal planners 1n designing and evaluating such structures. This note provides information on pier construction impacts on local beach fauna communities on a mid-Atlantic barrier island.
