Environmental Planning Section Chief, USACE SAN FRANCISCO DISTRICT (SPN)

Julie Beagle is the Environmental Planning Section Chief for the USACE San Francisco District (SPN). She brings a focus on integrating nature-based approaches into USACE studies, projects, operations, and actions across all business lines. She is the environmental technical lead on several projects, including piloting strategic shallow water placement of dredged materials in SF Bay to support marsh and mudflat resilience to sea-level rise. Her recent technical contributions include serving as lead author for the San Francisco Bay Shoreline Adaptation Atlas, a resource for employing nature-based adaptation measures along the SF Bay shoreline. She has worked as a fluvial and estuarine geomorphologist throughout the rivers and wetlands of California for the last 15 years and has a master’s degree in environmental planning from the University of California, Berkeley.

A Slick Strategy for Spiking Sediment Supply*

We’re trying something new here at Salty Dave’s Wetland Weblog: a two-author post! The topic below is so interesting that we needed two people to cover it. I’m joined by Julie Beagle, Environmental Planning Section Chief in the San Francisco District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I’ve used my usual imprecise language in the plain text below, and Julie has weighed in with corrections and clarifications to make the story more complete. Her words are in italics. I am grateful for Julie’s work with me on this.
