|In the summer of 2002, a 2.0 Mcy (million cubic yards) beach renourishment project was constructed along the southernmost oceanfront shoreline segment of Amelia Island, between R-60 and R-79.5. The project included the Amelia Island State Park as well as privately owned properties located north of the park. The FDEP Joint Coastal Permit for that project was 0187721-001-JC, Nassau County.
Approximately one year following completion of the Phase I Beach Fill, permits for a Phase II Structural Stabilization project were issued by the FDEP Joint Coastal Permit 0187721-002-JC and 003-EM). Three rock structures were permitted with the intention of a.) stabilizing the severely eroded Park oceanfront shoreline at a more seaward position for purposes of restoring recreational beach and protecting a unique maritime forest and related Sea Island ecosystem; b.) increasing the overall performance (i.e. longevity) of the 3.5 mile beach restoration project and in particular the Park shoreline segment lying in close proximity to Nassau Sound; and c.) to assist in fostering the stability of the Park east-west shoreline which borders a relatively deep Nassau Sound marginal tidal channel.
Here is the report in its entirety.
