North Reach Beach Nourishment Surf Impact Monitoring Project
The Cocoa Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation is conducting a surf impact study to document the impacts of this beach nourishment project on our beaches and waves. We need volunteers to participate in this study. The study is projected to run from May 2013 until December 2014. If you are interested in volunteering please proceed to our beach nourishment surf impact study using the link below.
Surf Impact Study
Beach Nourishment Alert
The US Army Corps of Engineers has announced plans to nourish the North Reach of Brevard County (Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach) with sand from the Canaveral Shoals offshore borrow site. This is the same borrow site used to nourish the North Reach in 2001 and 2005. Scientific research has shown that the sand from the Canaveral Shoals borrow site is much coarser than the natural sand in the North Reach and will result in increased rip current formations and have a negative impact on the surfing wave conditions.
Cocoa Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation is leading the campaign to prevent the placement of incompatible sand on our beaches. We will make a public presentation at the Cocoa Beach City Commission meeting on May 2 at 7PM. We will also speak at the Cape Canaveral City Commission meeting on May 21. We encourage all members to get involved.
Contact your city and county commissioners and make your voices heard.
