Watergate Villas East Shoreline Stabilization
St. Thomas, VI
BCSC Dospiva conducted topographic and benthic surveys, performed an Environmental Assessment, prepared design plans and construction specifications, and permitted the project through the USVI Department of Natural Resources Coastal Zone Management Program. Erosion of the existing shoreline has destabilized the slope and has put the foundations of Buildings 16 and 17 at risk of future storm damage. The beach will be returned to pre-hurricane conditions, and lighting, irrigation, and new plantings will be installed as part of the project. A Major Land Permit Amendment has been approved by CZM and the project is complete, except for mangrove plantings.
