Abstract : Lakeshore Park consists of approximately 50 acres of lakefront property located in the township of Ashatbula, Ohio. The Buffalo District has investigated public concerns of the Lakeshore Park study area related to shoreline protection and restoration of a recreational beach. Among other plans considered, two were selected for detailed study: alternative 2, consisting of a three-breakwater system protecting 800 feet of beachfill; and alternative 1, the no-action plan, would provide no structural features or beach nourishment. Alternative 2 has been selected for construction based on its performance in identifying public concerns and its net positive contributions to goal of National Economic Development. Implementation of any of the alternatives originally considered would not produce significant long-term adverse impact on the environment. (Author)
