Wiggins Pass - Inlet Management Plan

Document Type: 
Management Plan

Pursuant to subsection 161.101(2), Florida Statutes, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is the beach and shore preservation authority for the State of Florida. As part of the Department’s statewide beach management plan adopted pursuant to section 161.161, Florida Statutes, the Department is adopting this inlet management plan for Wiggins Pass in Collier County, Florida. This plan updates strategies for Wiggins Pass adopted in the Strategic Beach Management Plan (DEP, 2018) to be consistent with current statutes and observed erosion1 conditions. As a first step towards adoption of this inlet management plan, in 2012, the Department and Collier County sponsored a study of Wiggins Pass performed by CBI – CP&E to compile new and historical data and information regarding beach and inlet changes and the dynamic coastal littoral processes in this area, and develop an updated sediment budget.
