The purpose of this study is to perform a shore assessment around Jackson Creek in order to determine what processes are affecting sedimentation in the creek mouth. In addition, the placement of sandy dredge material from Jackson Creek onto Stove Point also was to be determined. The Jackson Creek-Stove Point-Stingray Point evaluation includes an assessment of shore conditions and historic shore changes as well as a wave climate and sediment transport analysis. The product of this study is a recommendation as to the location of placement of dredge spoil for beach nourishment along the Stove Point Shoreline.
