NOAA Releases "Guidance for Considering the Use of Living Shorelines"

Promoting living shorelines as a shoreline stabilization technique

Laura Wilson 0 2124 Article rating: No rating

NOAA has released a Guidance for Considering the Use of Living Shorelines, which outlines how we promote living shorelines as a shoreline stabilization technique. Along sheltered coasts, living shorelines can preserve and improve habitats and the benefits they provide and promote resilient communities.

Green Shores for Homes

Laura Wilson 0 3446 Article rating: No rating

Volunteer Monitoring of Shoreline Restoration

Washington Sea Grant

Laura Wilson 0 2796 Article rating: No rating

In Puget Sound, shoreline armoring is being removed or is being replaced with what are thought to be less disruptive alternatives. Restoring physical and biological connections in the nearshore where structures are not at risk is expected to improve habitat conditions and reduce long-term costs for homeowners. By establishing volunteer monitoring of these sites, Washington Sea Grant has helped create a baseline for erosion and vegetation that can be used to inform other projects and shoreline management decisions in the near-term and provide a long-term reference as climate change and sea level rise influence conditions in the nearshore.
