Shoreline Engineering

  • There is no erosion problem until a structure is built on the shoreline. Beach erosion is a common expected event, not a natural disaster.
  • Construction by man on the shoreline causes shoreline changes.
  • Shoreline engineering protects the interests of very few, often at a very high cost in Federal and state dollars.
  • Shoreline engineering destroys the beach it was intended to save.
  • The cost of saving beach property through shoreline engineering is usually greater than the value of the property to be saved.
  • Once you begin shoreline engineering, you can't stop.
