The City of Sanibel will begin a survey of the island’s beaches Monday, July 12 to monitor coastal erosion and accretion. This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and take approximately three weeks to complete.
This year’s monitoring project has been awarded to Aptim Environmental & Infrastructure. The project is half funded by the Tourism Development Council with the remaining half funded by beach parking fees. It’s part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data.
Anyone with questions about the 2021 beach monitoring project should contact the Department of Community Services Public Works operations at 239-472-6397.
