A discussion of Sediment Management policy on The Capitol Beach
Part One of the ASBPA-CSO Policy Confab
“Beaches and inlets are dynamic features that change based upon the flow of sediment through coastal systems. Properly valuing and managing sediment supports balanced coastal uses, which is essential to the ecosystem health, economic vitality, and resilience of coastal states and communities.” The first of a five part series reviewing coastal policies essential for improving beach and inlet management, taken from American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) and Coastal States Organization’s (CSO) new “Joint Policy.” Derek Brockbank is joined by Rachel Keylon, CSO Federal Affairs Director, and Tony Pratt, ASBPA President. Be sure to listen to the other episodes on Permitting, Funding, Shoreline Development, and Research for a comprehensive review of what Congress and the Administration need to do to improve resilience for coastal beaches and inlets.
