The US Army Corps of Engineers has announced plans to nourish the North Reach of Brevard County (Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach) starting in November 2013. They plan to fill the 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 may increase the probability of rip current formations and could have a negative impact on the surfing wave conditions. 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. More info.
