Shoreline Erosion Control for a Changing Tide: Living Shorelines – Case Studies and Lessons Learned from Planning, Design, and Construction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The concept of using soft engineering methods to protect our coastal shorelines is not a new one, but the design and implementation of “living shorelines” is just really starting to take off in the Mid-Atlantic. Local and state governments are beginning to mandate a greener approach to shoreline protection, where bulkheads and stone are no longer seen as the only best solution to the problem. In the face of rising sea levels and the advent of strict water quality regulations, many localities are challenged to find new ways to protect property, restore their waterways, and meet aggressive water quality treatment goals, especially along the Chesapeake Bay. The presentation will highlight a variety of public and private living shoreline projects in heavily developed urban watersheds, as well as the challenges and opportunities for living shoreline implementation. Attendees will follow the City of Norfolk’s 1,100LF Colley Bay Living Shoreline project, through conceptualization, design drawings, and construction, and receive valuable lessons learned from owner, designer, and contractor.
