Shore Protection and Revetment
Shoreline and property erosion is a natural process that properties along the lakeshore continually face, and in recent years, wind and high-water levels have accelerated the process. As this occurs the beach is naturally swept away, reducing the sandy areas once enjoyed. Though the problem may appear gradual, over time it can compromise not only the beach, but potentially impact the bluff above the shoreline.
Shore protection in the form of a stone revetment is a natural element that when properly constructed adds stability to the beach and to the line that delineates the bottom of the bluff slope connecting to the shoreline, commonalty called the bluff toe.
