Interim Dune Restoration / Stabilization

Anchor QEA evaluated interim shoreline protective measures for restoration and stabilization of a beach that suffered significant hurricane damage, including beach erosion and destruction of boardwalks and dunes.

We reviewed available site-specific data and existing engineering and shoreline guidance, estimated the wave runup for various return-interval storm events, evaluated existing dune heights and beach slopes in the project vicinity, and evaluated installation techniques of the proposed interim measures, which included using plantings and sand fencing, used Christmas trees, and trap bags.
