This report represents the first attempt to update the earlier Shoreline Situation Reports. It's purpose is to present recent shoreline conditions. and evaluate, where possible, the change in shore condition since previous reports. New information is presented for areas not previously surveyed. Additional attributes have also been added in phase two. Some information, however, was not computed as part of this second reporting phase, and reference to earlier conditions may be presented. For example, revised shoreline erosion and accretion rates were not computed, but knowledge of previous rates may be of interest in some areas. These are included in this report.
