Barrow, Alaska Coastal Erosion Section 116 Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment Directors Report (2019)
Recommendation of a non-NED plan based on a Cost Effective/Incremental Cost Analysis (CE/ICA), which was based on a "community resilience unit" (CRU) metric and which measured relative changes in various economic, social/cultural, and environmental metrics. This alternative plan would reduce flooding and erosion impacts across all six reaches in the entire five mile study area, and address not only potential economic impacts in the project area under a future without project condition, but address additional cultural and environmental impacts as well. The study was conducted based on authorization under Section 116 of the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (EWDRAAA) of 2010.

Recommended of a National Economic Development (NED) plan, which is a continuation of the existing Carolina Beach CSRM project portion for a 15-year period from 2022 to 2036 using Carolina Beach Inlet as the borrow source.

The dune and berm extend about 14,000 feet along the beachfront from the northern to the southern limits of Carolina Beach.
