Update from the Bayswater Seaside erosion control project in New Seabury, MA:
Our contractor, C.F. Briggs, has completed the first sand envelope. These photographs show the stitched-together coir fiber mat pulled back over the first layer of sand, and the wire mesh folded back on top of it.
Each sand envelope is composed of (from outside in):
- A wire mesh envelope
- Two 35’x250′ hand-stitched coir envelopes
- Two layers of filter fabric
- Approximately 275 cubic yards of sand
C.F. Briggs reports they have been working with difficult weather conditions, but construction of the second envelope is underway. Seven more envelopes to go!
