Unpaved Road Assessment and Prioritization of NOAA Investments on Culebra Island, Puerto Rico
US DOC; NOAA; National Marine Fisheries Service; Office of Habitat Conservation
Type Period Note:
"Culebras Integrated Watershed Management Plan (2013) identified unpaved roads as a primary contributor to sediment loadings in the nearshore coastal waters, which are threatening coral reef habitats in the region. Since then, NOAA has invested over $800,000 dollars to develop and implement cost-effective best management practices (BMPs) to stabilize these unpaved roads and reduce sediment loadings to coral reef habitats. This report was developed to provide: an inventory of unpaved roads on Culebra, summarize the impact of NOAAs investments in stabilizing unpaved roads on Culebra, and propose a method for prioritizing future NOAA investments in unpaved road stabilization projects on Culebra."
