Beach Renourishment

TERMINAL GROIN PROJECT

On October 14, 2019, the Town received notification the National Audubon Society had filed an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit from the order dated September 25, 2019 denying summary judgement for National Audubon and granting summary judgement for the Town.  Unfortunately, this appeal process will once again delay construction of this project.

 

2019 ANNUAL BEACH MONITORING ANALYSIS

The Town contracts with APTIM Coastal Planning and Engineering to prepare an annual Beach Monitoring Report and Analysis based on the Beach Surveys the Town had been performing since 2012.  The purpose of this study is to provide an assessment of the current conditions of a portion of the Town’s shoreline and to identify erosion and accretion trends over time.  To do so, APTIM examines both short-term and long-term changes over time within the areas where these surveys have been performed.

30 YEAR BEACH MANAGEMENT PLAN ADOPTED APRIL 2015

During the April 14, 2015 Board Meeting,  the Board of Commissioners adopted the Ocean Isle Beach 30-Year Beach Management Plan.  The management area will consist of the beach strand from the location of the proposed terminal groin project, located on the east end of the island, to the east shoulder of Tubbs Inlet, a  total distance of 5.1 miles. 

Components of the study include an engineering analysis of the existing federal project, a sand resource assessment , and an assessment of the environmental documentation and permitting requirements that would be necessary for the Town to manage its entire ocean front shoreline.
