Abstract

The overall purpose of the Fort Tilden project is to understand the potential impacts from future storms on existing natural and cultural resources, infrastructure, and safety of surrounding communities, and to use this as a guide for siting and designing future coastal protection measures. One existing protection measure that was exposed from the storm is the existing timber bulkhead. This paper assesses the bulkhead and groin system functions by utilizing a shoreline structure assessment and determines what coastal protection measures, if any, the bulkhead is providing currently or in the future. Beyond the condition assessment, a range of treatment options and initial costs were generated as an initial step in evaluation and recommendation of treatment for the bulkhead in the Fort Tilden Beach Environmental Assessment. This alternative analysis was performed to ascertain what defense measures are necessary to achieve the desired natural and cultural resource protection conditions for the site.
