St. Lucie County Coastal Engineer Earns Lifetime Achievement Award from Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association

Post Date:10/03/2019 10:30 AM

St. Lucie County’s Coastal Engineer Richard Bouchard was recently named the 2019 recipient of the Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bouchard began his career with St. Lucie County in June of 1989 after spending several years at the South Florida Water Management District. Over his 30-year career in local government, his efforts have brought in more than $88 million in state, federal and private funds to the county’s 21-miles of coastline.

In 1995, Bouchard transitioned into his current position of Coastal Engineer leading beach restoration efforts through the St. Lucie County Erosion District. The federal Fort Pierce Shore Protection Project (SPP) had languished from inattention since 1985. Bouchard reinvigorated the project through coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Jacksonville District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. His efforts lead the way to the first of many restoration projects in 1999. Since then, 12 separate nourishment events have taken place involving a variety of sand sources including Capron Shoal, inlet and intracoastal waterway navigation channels, Port of Fort Pierce turning basin and upland sand mines.
