Often storms erode the coastline or leave dangerous escarpments on the beach. Beaches and shore lines may be eligible for emergency sand placement or permanent restoration. Project location, scope of work, sand source, and potential impacts to flora and fauna are all important components to be considered. Since these areas may be environmentally sensitive, coordination with multiple agencies may be required. All beach projects undergo extensive review by FEMA. The scope of work will determine the level of FEMA review and environmental consultation.
