Data Center Description
The Dare County Beaches (Bodie Island) Shore Protection Project includes the towns of Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head along the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The design is to construct a 25-ft wide, 13-ft (ngvd) high dune fronted by a 50-ft wide berm at an elevation of 7-ft (ngvd). In 2004, the South Atlantic Division, Wilmington District (SAW) initiated physical and biological monitoring to assess the performance of the project. SAW partnered with the USACE Engineering Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory's Field Research Facility (FRF) located in Duck, NC for the physical monitoring.
