The purpose of this environmental assessment is to develop alternatives, to the extent possible, that allow natural shoreline processes while restoring or preserving the natural and cultural resources. This coastal restoration project is needed to reassess prior shoreline stabilization actions at Sand Point and determine and assess future management actions based on the best currently available scientific information.
Any person wishing to receive notifications concerning this process can submit their name and e-mail address, which will be placed on a mailing list. Requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (email). Comments will not be accepted at this email.
