Bio-engineered solution for coastal erosion protection, pt.5

Update from Woods Hole Group’s bio-engineered erosion control project at Bayswater Seaside in New Seabury, MA:  half of the sand envelopes have been installed, and placement of the 12″ pilings for toe stabilization has commenced.

For more information on this project, read our project description and updates (part 2, part 3, part 4).

    As yet, I can’t get a sense of the “bio” part of this. I’m very interested in the what the final project will look like.

    • Thanks for your comment, Bill. Our design emphasizes the use of biodegradable materials to create the shore protection features. The objective of the design is for the biodegradable materials (coir fiber mats and rolls) to hold the sand envelopes in place long enough for the bank to stabilize itself naturally. We are excited to see the final results as well and will keep you posted as the project progresses.
