Palm Beach County Breakwaters Petition

503 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We the undersigned, supporters of the Surfrider Foundation Palm Beach County Chapter, oppose the plans proposed by the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management Environmental Enhancement and Restoration Division(ERM) to construct breakwaters at Singer Island, Jupiter and/or Lantana for the following reasons: 1) Destroys or Degrades Public Trust Resources 2) Allocates tax dollars to benefit a very small group of people; 3)Risk to juvenile fish populations; 4) Creates a nautical hazard; 5) Concers about turtle hatchling success; 6) Diminishes natural beauty of beaches; 7) Danger to public safety due to rip currents; 8) Not a long term solution to the real problem of coastal erosion. While the Surfrider Foundation recognizes the problem of beach erosion, we feel public funds would be better spent on projects like sand transfer plants at the inlets that address the real problem and benefit larger areas of the coastline.
