4VAC45-10-150. Monitoring program.

Each participating locality must submit an outline of a beach response monitoring program with its application. Each locality should pattern its program to its needs. Items for consideration in developing such a program are:

1. Beach profiles reference to a known bench mark, preferably mean sea level.

2. Bathymetric profiles extending from beach profile lines to an appropriate distance offshore.

3. Sediment samples from the beach and offshore along the profile lines.

4. Photography, both aerial and ground.

5. Time frame. The monitoring program should contain at least one set of data points before the installation of the project. Updates along the profile lines should be timed to reflect changes in the system. Each locality should be prepared to monitor pre- and post-storm beach response.

Each locality should develop a reasonable monitoring program which reflects beach changes but is not an excessive financial burden to the locality. Assistance from the Commission and the Technical Advisor is available in developing the minimum requirements for an acceptable monitoring program.
