      Shoreline Erosion Control. Shoreline erosion creates several problems. It weakens the barrier between your home and forces of nature (like ice heaving & ice jacking).; It washes away your yard inch by inch, and you’re not allowed to replace what’s been lost.; It prevents you from enjoying your land (and water) to the fullest. Ye Yincan et al, in Marine Geo-Hazards in China, Basic Concept of Coastal Erosion. Coastal erosion is a result of human activities and natural environment changes making the coastal dynamic action (wave, current, wind) lose balance in the coastal process, and the long-term loss of sediments of coastal zone results in the destruction process of coastline retreat and beach erosion.

A woven monofilament geotextile was first used as a filter in a shoreline erosion control application in Florida in Since that time, the use of geotextiles has become commonplace and has grown to include the broader category of geosynthetics. However, a geotextile is the most common geosynthetic used in shoreline erosion control.

Preventing and Repairing Shoreline Erosion Shorelines of stormwater ponds are prone to erosion because there are many forces working to undermine the stability of the bank. In many communities, property lines and HOA easements are drawn relative to the pond shore. To implement effective beach erosion control and coastal ecosystem protection strategies, coastal managers need information on long- and short-term changes taking place along the coast, including beach profiles, changes from erosion, and wetlands changes from inundation.

Understanding, Living With, and Controlling Shoreline Erosion. Section One: Introduction to Shoreline Erosion. Erosion is the wearing away of the land surface by the action of wind, water, ice, or gravity. Sedimentation is the deposition of eroded soils in waterways or other locations.

Office of Management and Budget. Shoreline stabilization includes those structures that are intended to stop shore erosion from wave or current action, protect channels and harbors from wave action, encourage deposition of beach materials, prevent shoreline overflow, and/or retain uplands.

Controlling shoreline erosion is complicated. All the forces acting on a particular site need to be considered. A project that fails leads to loss of money, loss of land and ecological damage.

Shoreline erosion control projects should not be undertaken lightly and land owners would be wise to consult with professional engineers before proceeding.
