Just recently, the ACE (American Corp of Engineers) has released it’s ”final plan” for the mid reach (the 7.8 miles of beach from south end of PAFB to north Indialantic). Public comment is open until January 30.
This section of beach has been spared the type of large-scale dredge-and-fill ”beach renourishment” projects that have ruined surfing and fishing up and down our coast. Because of the unique coquina reef which is a Federally protected fish habitat, the ACE has had to formulate a plan ”they say” will only bury a few acres of reef. We all know how accurate the ACE is at predicting the outcome of their projects (not).
Let us be its primary defenders. SAVE THE REEF!
