Cost Sharing Agreement for Planning Assistance Between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District and the Galveston Park Board of Trustees
The Galveston District (SWG) has been engaged by the Galveston Park Board of Trustees (Park Board) through the Planning Assistance to States program to develop a sand management plan for Galveston Island. This Statement of Work (SOW) is to provide Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) support to SWG to help develop the long term management plan for the Park Board managed areas of Galveston Island. Currently sand is placed on Galveston Island beaches at a coast as high as $40/CY, with no clear plan for long term sustainability. To help develop a long term plan to manage sands and beaches, state of the art modeling and analysis techniques will be applied in collaboration with Park Board staff and others to develop and rank science based solutions improving use of the limited sand sources available. Project documents and other project deliverables would be used to seek grant funds to augment existing funding, support construction, and further investigate potential solutions.
