A masonry seawall protects the property and facilities of St. Edmund’s Retreat on Ender's Island in Mystic, Conn., from storms, but the wall is currently in poor condition, especially on the southeast side, and is being investigated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' New England District. In fiscal year 2010, the district received funding to initiate a feasibility investigation under Section 103 of the Corps Continuing Authorities Program. The study will examine alternatives for protecting the existing infrastructure and preventing erosion and coastal flooding. Once federal interest is determined and a cost-shared agreement is executed, the Corps will develop alternatives to protect the seawall and control erosion, evaluate the alternatives and recommend an alternative plan that is complies with Corps policies and procedures. The recommended alternative plan will be based on the alternative that most effectively optimizes flood/storm damage reduction, while minimizing any negative effects to existing habitat, flora and fauna and cultural resources.
