City to begin annual beach surveys for erosion, accretion

By Staff | Feb 25, 2019

The city of Sanibel will begin surveying the island’s beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion on Feb. 26, according to a prepared statement released today.

The work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately three weeks to complete.

This year’s monitoring project has been awarded to APTIM Environmental and Infrastructure. The project is funded through the Lee County Tourist Development Council and beach parking fees.

It is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data.
