Great Lakes Shoreline Restoration Webinar - GoToWebinar
Hosted by Trent Daavettila P.E., CSI Geoturf’s Project Consulting Engineer and Steve Williams P.E, Tensar Corporation.
Join us for a 45-minute webinar during which you’ll learn about new innovative, cost-effective erosion control products that can minimize and work in unison with hard armor solutions.
In this webinar you will learn about cost-saving products from the following industry-leading companies:
While erosion is a natural process, Michigan’s 3,300 miles of Great Lakes shoreline are eroding at an alarming rate due to the high water levels in recent years. These high water levels are overwhelming existing erosion control measures as well as the winds and are especially concerning for Lakes Huron, Michigan and Superior, which are considered HREAs, or high-risk erosion areas. These areas are losing shoreline nearly daily, putting homes and other structures at risk of falling into the lake.
To mitigate much of this risk, planned and permitted construction projects often include either moving the structure’s back from the shoreline and/or implementing hard armor to lessen the effects of shoreline erosion.
Since these methods can often be costly and otherwise not feasible, several industry-leading brands have created innovative shoreline protection methods that are more affordable, more environmentally friendly and provide better performance.
These products can change the way you build on the shores of the Great Lakes, so be sure to join us for this informative discussion.
