Coastal Zone Management

Coastal Systems International, Inc. pioneered a regional approach in beach management through detailed analysis of historical sand movement. This larger, regional plan provides a greater, more focused understanding and perspective of the coastal area as well as allowing for greater efficiency in the development of management plans, whether producing one plan for an entire region or separate plans for inlets and beaches. Benefits to a regional approach include:

  • Aid in Long-Term Beach Management Planning of Municipalities
  • Better Understanding of Large-Scale Demand and Availability of Sand
  • Cost Optimization through Consolidation of Smaller Projects into the Larger Region and Sharing of Resources through Local, State, and Federal Cooperation
  • Integration of Inlet/Port and Beach Management Plans Toward Maintaining an Entire Regional Littoral System
  • More Accurate Prediction of Long-Term Shoreline Changes and Evolution
