Beach Nourishment Hardbottom Monitoring

Pinnacle completed biological monitoring associated with a beach nourishment project in Hillsboro/Deerfield Beach, FL. Nearshore hardbottom habitat was mapped, sediment depth and cover was measured, and percent cover of benthic macroinvertebrate and macroalgal communities along previously established shore perpendicular transects in and adjacent to the project area was collected. Field activities were conducted from 19 August 2016 through 19 September 2016. Monitoring data was used to complete a Post-Construction Survey Report.
