Welcome to the Palm Beach Island Beach Management Agreement (BMA) Pilot Project Website
 

In 2012, the Florida Department of Environmental Protectionís Bureau of Beaches and Coastal Systems initiated a pilot project designed to take a regional approach to permitting beach nourishment and inlet management. Currently, the departmentís beach nourishment efforts are permitted on a project-by-project basis.

This pilot project includes about 15 miles of shoreline and stretches across several public and private boundary lines from the Lake Worth/Palm Beach Inlet to the South Lake Worth/Boynton Inlet in Palm Beach County. The department will work with local governments and other groups in a stakeholder-driven process to develop a cooperative agreement to managing this stretch of shoreline, as a whole.

Collaborative efforts among stakeholders will include identifying beach nourishment and inlet management needs, cost-sharing opportunities and permitting requirements for this beach region rather than for a single beach project.

By taking a regional approach to restoration, DEP will improve the effectiveness of its program and the health of our beaches by focusing on areas where restoration will have the greatest environmental benefit and the best chance of long-term success.
