Abstract:

Beach restoration with dredged material provides a feasible means of counteracting beach erosion in many coastal areas. Therefore, the Corps is moving more and more toward beach fills to solve coastal erosion problems. As an Environmental Impact Statement is required for these projects,. the Corps is being asked to answer complex environmental questions about the effects of beach restoration. At present, available information is generally inadequate to substantiate the required evaluations.. A study at Imperial Beach, California, provides some preliminary guidance for evaluating beach restoration projects in southern California.
