Document Description
The recommended (NED) plan, Alternative 2, involves construction of a base beach fill consisting of 925,000 cubic meters (1,210,000 cubic yards) of suitable beach sand, plus a sacrificial advance beach fill of 764,000 cubic meters (1,000,000 cubic yards), for a total initial beach fill of 1,689,000 cubic meters (2,209,000 cubic yards). The placement will be 2,165 meters (7,100 feet) long extending from the northerly groin to the southern end of the development, providing a base nourishment beach width of 25 meters (82 feet) at an elevation of +4 meters (+13 feet) MLLW. The additional sacrificial beach width will be 20 meters (66 yards), so that initially the nourished beach will be 45 meters (148 yards) wider than the existing beach. The nourished beach is expected to erode to the 25-meter (82-foot) width after 10 years. It will be renourished with a sacrificial advance beach fill of 764,000 cubic meters (1,000,000 cubic yards) every 10 years within the 50-year project lifetime.
