Corps to host coastal informational beach walks

Published May 16, 2018

DETROIT – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, will host informational outreach events featuring discussions about coastal processes, erosion, water levels and the Corps’ programs and regulations.

These events, facilitated by the Corps staff, will discuss: water level regulation and forecasts, coastal geology and erosion, regulatory program and permitting requirements, planning programs and authorities with an interactive beach walk to illustrate these coastal processes.

These forums will provide an opportunity to interact with Corps personnel to discuss erosion and working along shorelines; such as when a permit is required from the Corps; and if there are Corps programs that can help.

Speakers are Corps’ Detroit District team members from the Great Lakes Hydraulics & Hydrology, Regulatory and Planning offices led by Jim Selegean, Ph.D., hydraulic engineer, Great Lakes Hydraulics & Hydrology office. Selegean is the lead of the district’s coastal engineering and field measurements group.
