On Monday, July 12th, the City of Sanibel will begin surveying the island’s beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion. This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately three weeks to complete.
This year’s monitoring project has been awarded to Aptim Environmental & Infrastructure, LLC. This project is half funded by the Tourist Development Council with the remaining half being funded by Beach Parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Community Services Public Works Operations at 239-472-6397 if you have any questions regarding the 2021 Beach Monitoring project.
