Jekyll Island Authority – Shoreline Rehabilitation

FEMA Project Number: PA-04-GA-4338-PW-01663

Jekyll Island Authority intends to conduct shoreline rehabilitation activities along approximately 15,000 ft of the north-central portions of the island located within the FEMA VE Special Flood Hazard Area Zone floodplain.  FEMA VE Zones, also known as the coastal high hazard areas, are areas subject to high velocity water including waves.  They are defined by the 1% annual chance (base) flood limits (also known as the 100-year flood) and wave effects 3 feet or greater.  The project is located in VE Zones with base flood elevations ranging from +11.0 to +13.0 ft (NAVD88), per the effective FIRM panels 13127C0332H and 13127C0334H, dated January 4, 2018.

The purpose of the project is to provide coastal storm protection to existing upland developed infrastructure and natural habitats.  The project will provide ancillary benefits by the creation, restoration, and/or enhancement of dune and terrace berm habitats and additional public recreation benefits.  The project will rehabilitate and improve the resilience of the existing rock revetment structure along the island shoreline that has suffered historic-long term degradation and recent severe damage by hurricane activity.  This is accomplished by adding larger, more stable rock to the existing structure to rebuild it to the original design template and regain its functionality.   Total estimated rock quantity estimated for the project is up to 54,000 tons.  The project will include the placement of up to approximately 120,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand landward of the rehabilitated rock revetment structure to replenish sand that has been lost due to long-term erosion and recent severe erosion due to hurricane activity.  A 250 ft long by 10 ft diameter sand filled-geotextile tube may also be installed and buried under beach quality sand for additional scarp protection along the north extent of the project.  Sand fencing will be installed to minimize wind-blown sand from leaving the system and build and maintain a healthy dune system.

Interested parties may contact Ben Carswell, as listed above, to make public comments or request additional information.
