Connecticut Sea Grant launches website to help coastal homeowners

The website serves as a decision support tool.

Connecticut Sea Grant announces a new website intended to assist coastal Connecticut beach property owners and beach associations with hazards such as impacts from storms and associated erosion and flooding.  The new site helps users evaluate threats and prepare to protect property from further damage.   A variety of actions, depending on the scale of damage and cost, are provided, including options such as dune restoration, repairing seawalls, moving landward or elevating structures. 


The new site is accessible athttp://beachduneguide.uconn.edu.


“We hope this website will be a valuable resource for both coastal property owners and managers in helping to protect infrastructure as well as the natural environment” said Dr. Juliana Barrett, one of the site’s creators. Barrett is an associate coastal habitat educator with Connecticut Sea Grant and UConn Extension.  The site was based on Maine Sea Grant’s Coastal Hazards site; we have added our own special touches in adapting to Connecticut.
