RESULTS OF SHORELINE EROSION DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

B.L. Edge, J.G. Housley

Abstract


Very little has been done in the United States to assist the private landowner when his property has been threatened by coastal erosion. Primarily, efforts have been concentrated on large scale shoreline protection efforts which cover municipalities or large regions. These efforts have been basically Federal or large state projects. Between 1974 and 1980, the United States government conducted a national program to fill this void by demonstrating a low cost technology for shoreline defense. The objective of this paper is to report on the program itself and its results.
