The city of Sanibel began surveying the island's beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion on July 23, according to officials.

The work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately three weeks to complete.

This year's monitoring project has been awarded to Aptim Environmental & Infrastructure. It is being half funded by the Lee County Tourist Development Council, with the remaining half being funded by beach parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data.
