Results of the latest Coochiemudlo Island foreshore survey are in
Council recently obtained the results of the latest Coochiemudlo Island beach survey and compared it to the previous year's survey data. A comparison of the beach profiles shows there has not been a significant change to sand levels over the monitoring period, indicating no erosion.
Some movement of sand up and down the beach profile is expected to occur on any natural shoreline, however the survey indicates there has been no net loss of sand and no evidence of erosion over the period.
To view a snapshot of the survey outputs, please refer to the 'Foreshore Survey Results' section located on the main page.
These surveys are providing Council with a good knowledge base to make informed decisions on the management of the foreshore and provide the community confidence that there is no evidence of rampant erosion over the last year.
Council continues to monitor and manage foreshores across Redlands Coast, including Coochiemudlo Island.
