 The Maine Shore and the Army Corps: A Tale of Two Harbors, Wells and Saco, Maine - Maine Policy Review - Margaret Chase ...
Maine has led the nation in safeguarding beaches through the "Sand Dune Law" (now incorporated into the Natural Resource Protection Act, 38 M.S.R.A., sections 471-478), and in successfully resolving the Camp Ellis and Wells issues, which could once again take a leadership role in addressing the place of harbors in beach systems.
All later USACOE studies of beach erosion at the mouth of the Saco River (1920, 1939, 1955, 1961, 1969, 1976, 1987) denied a harmful influence of the jetty on the adjacent eroding beach, and invoked storms as the cause of that problem.
For example, the army’s failure to consider the Saco River as the source of sand to the bay’s beaches could be ascribed to a general lack of understanding of coastal processes in the 1800s—if such a misunderstanding did not persist in 1994.
