Proposed measures on the Lower Texas Coast

Willacy and Cameron counties

Beach Nourishment

On the lower Texas coast, beach restoration measures have been proposed on South Padre Island to include 2.9 miles of beach nourishment and sediment management. This will both renourish beaches critical to our state’s wildlife and visitors, as well as provide a first level of defense against storms.

The plan proposes beach nourishment on a 10-year cycle for the authorized project life of 50 years. The economic analysis confirms that beach nourishment is cost effective.
