An ecological restoration project that removed degraded industrial features and implemented salt water habitat restoration, improved runoff design and increased recreational access to the water for local users.
- Ecological restoration and recreation access can be dually accomplished in areas where shoreline space is limited.
- Understanding site environmental conditions such as hydrology, water chemistry, and underlying substrate is critical to successful shoreline design and restoration.
- It is essential to design sites with attention to sea level rise scenarios.
- The impact of debris washed up during storm events should be accounted for in project design.
