Hollywood Beach Truck Haul Renourishment, Florida.

After completion of the Broward County Segment III
Beach Restoration Project in 2006, Coastal Systems
was retained by the City to evaluate interim measures
for ongoing beach maintenance. The City's beaches are highly influenced by Port Everglades inlet to the north which is not bypassed and acts as a littoral barrier to downdrift beaches.
Coastal Systems planned, designed, and permitted the 2011 Hollywood Beach Truck Haul Maintenance Nourishment Project. In August 2009, Coastal Systems submitted a Joint Coastal Permit application to the Florida DEP and to the U.S.

Army Corps of Engineers for the truck haul project, and
concurrently, an application was submitted to the Broward
County Environmental Protection and Growth Management
Department (EPGMD). To distribute consulting (soft) and
eventual construction (hard) costs, the City partnered with the City of Hallandale Beach to permit a truck haul project along the Hallandale Beach shoreline from R-124 south to R-128 with the placement of 71,500 cy of beach fill from an upland source.

The Hollywood Beach Renourishment Project consisted of beach fill placement along two segments, North and South. The North Segment extends approximately 2,380 linear feet, from DEP Reference monument R-107 to approximately 300 feet south of R-109 and includes a dune located at R-107. The South Segment
extends approximately 5,370 linear feet, from approximately 380 feet north of R- 119 to approximately 280 feet north of R-124.

The Project was constructed between December, 2011 and
February, 2012. Based on pre-construction beach profile surveys, construction fill volumes were reduced to avoid impacts to nearshore hardbottom. Approximately 8,200 cy on the North Segment and 61,200 cy at the South Segment. Coastal Systems provided construction administration services throughout the construction duration. In addition, physical monitoring is being
performed by Coastal Systems.

A Project specific Biological Monitoring Plan (BMP) was
developed in coordination with the regulatory and commenting agencies to ensure documentation of any unanticipated impacts associated with the Project. The BMP also included monitoring of Acropora colonies to evaluate the effects to the listed species.

The Hollywood Beach Nourishment Project was one of the first projects in the State to be authorized by State Programmatic Biological Opinion (SPBO). The City now has a 10-year beach maintenance permit, which authorizes subsequent beach nourishment "events". In accordance with the permit required BMP, Coastal Systems conducted the pre-construction biological monitoring of the nearshore hardbottom resources adjacent to the Project prior to construction. Project monitoring included a hardbottom edge and emergent epifauna survey.
