the feature to maintain the pre-project littoral supply to adjacent beaches. They will also be
designed to allow for installation utilizing only manpower and small equipment. The
breakwaters/groins and any other structures need to be unobtrusive and cannot interfere
with the public's use of the beach. The goal of the system is not to advance the existing
shoreline seaward of the adjacent shores, but to stabilize the shore and dune line and retain
a placed beach-fill volume.
The Special Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for design of the project was awarded in
FY 04. Phase 1 of the BAA will be completed by April 2005. Model testing is scheduled
to be completed in July 2005.
Concept designs will be physically modeled and final configuration selected by the end of
