“Beaches and inlets are dynamic features that change based upon the flow of sediment through coastal systems. Properly valuing and managing sediment supports balanced coastal uses, which is essential to the ecosystem health, economic vitality, and resilience of coastal states and communities.” This is a five part series reviewing coastal policies essential for improving beach and inlet management, taken from American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) and Coastal States Organization’s (CSO) new “Joint Beach and Inlet Management Policy with Coastal States Organization.”
Derek Brockbank is joined by Rachel Keylon, CSO Federal Affairs Director, and Tony Pratt, ASBPA President for a five-part series on what Congress and the Administration need to do to improve resilience for coastal beaches and inlets.
