FIMI Background:
[ Source: USACE FIMP page and NYS FIMI announcement ]

The 83 miles of shoreline along the south shore of Long Island, NY, between Fire Island Inlet and Montauk Point, has experienced serious erosion over the years, destroying resident homes.

With the passage of the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013, the Army Corps (The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - USACE) has been given the authority and funding to complete ongoing coastal storm damage risk management projects and studies in the Northeast, including the Fire Island Inlet to Moriches Inlet Stabilization Project, which had been previously proposed for construction but was never constructed.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced (August 2014) that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has signed legal agreements with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Suffolk County, and authorized $68 million in State financing, as part of a three phase $207 million coastal storm risk reduction project along Suffolk County’s Atlantic Ocean Coast. The project, commonly known as Fire Island Inlet to Moriches Inlet (FIMI), will be undertaken in conjunction with the Army Corps and Suffolk County

DEC, the Army Corps and Suffolk County have signed legal agreements for this project, which will include the construction of dunes and beaches in the 19-mile stretch between Fire Island Inlet and Moriches Inlet. Suffolk County will employ the State funding to acquire 41 at-risk privately-owned parcels and obtain more than 400 permanent easements on Fire Island to facilitate the placement of protective dunes. The State funding will ultimately be reimbursed by the federal government under the Disaster Relief Appropriation Act of 2013.

Work on the first phase of the FIMI project will begin this fall (2014) at Smith Point County Park. The Army Corps plans to award the construction contract for the work in September 2014. A second construction contract will be awarded later (in 2014) for work in Robert Moses State Park and the Fire Island Lighthouse tract. The third phase, which includes 17 Fire Island communities, will begin after the necessary real estate access has been obtained. The FIMI project completion is targeted for late 2016.
