San Juan, Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico's Department of Natural and Environmental Resources requested that an inventory be taken of all boat launch sites. Essential data was determined, collected and then placed into a digital database. A site comparison plan was developed to decipher which sites had the highest upgrade potential. A public participation plan was created to address any social concerns that may arise. Using the database, site comparisons, and public participation plan, the DNER will be able to choose which sites to upgrade.
