Beach erosion study under way
Beginning Aug. 9, the City of Sanibel will be surveying the island’s beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion. This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately two weeks to complete.
This year’s monitoring project has been awarded to Sea Diversified, Inc. in the amount of $68,250, half of which is funded by the Tourist Development Council with the remaining half being funded by Beach Parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Public Works Department at 472-6397 if you have any questions regarding the 2011 Beach Monitoring project.
