Building Resilience: How Better Sediment Management Can Help Coastal Communities
Sediment - the magic material of the coast.
In this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, co-hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham discuss the new report “Sediment Placement Regulations of U.S. Coastal States and Territories: Towards Regional Sediment Management Implementation” with two expert guests, Derek Brockbank and Nicole Elko. The report includes regulations from all 35 states and territories that govern sediment placement, as well as recommendations and case studies for better managing and innovatively using dredge material in coastal restoration and beach nourishment. This wonky but important topic intersects policy and implementation for coastal restoration and will be a helpful resource for the coastal community.
