The Top 3 Shoreline Erosion Management Articles
Though shoreline erosion is a natural process, it is a serious issue that should not be ignored. Shoreline erosion occurs for many reasons including stormwater runoff and human or animal activity. When lake and pond shorelines are damaged, it can often lead to an increase in excess nutrients entering the waterbody due to a lack of filtration from grass or beneficial buffer plants. This, in turn, will create water quality issues like algal blooms or aquatic weeds. Beyond the shoreline, erosion can lead to a loss in property value, damage to valuable assets like home foundations, and can become a liability issue.
Maintaining a healthy, stable shoreline will help you achieve the beautiful and safe waterbody you desire. Read our top three shoreline management articles to discover how to identify erosion damage and the innovative technologies available that can help restore damaged banks:
