Lambert, M.R., J. Chamberlin. 2023. Beach nourishment in Puget Sound: status, use, and habitat impacts. Prepared by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and NOAA NW Fisheries Science Center. 37 pp.


  • Developed as part of the Science Sprints to Support Regulation project, and analysis was informed by the needs of regulatory actors.
  • Provides a synthesis of all known and available evidence of beach nourishment effectiveness as of summer 2022.
  • This report was used to initiate and inform the Beach Nourishment page in 2023.
  • Authors provide the following qualified assessments:
    • "Beach nourishment is an effective restoration strategy when included in a suite of tools."
    • "Effectiveness of beach nourishment actions is sensitive to the volume of sediment placed."
    • "Ecological benefits of beach nourishment are largely inconsistent and remain generally unknown; further directed research activities are warranted."
    • "Project design requirements for beach nourishment should include better accounting of sediment loss due to natural processes."
    • "Cost/benefit of beach nourishment may warrant alternative strategies"
