Demonstration Project In Low-Cost Shoreline Erosion Control : Final Report To County Administrator, County Of Accomack, Virginia, Gary L. Anderson, Robert L. Byrne, David W. Byrd, Gary M. Chianakas

Reports

ยท1ow cost erosion control structures were installed at ten shoreline sites located in the lower Chesapeake Bay and on the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers to further test the applicability of the perched beach concept under diverse littoral environments. The perched beach is achieved via installation of a low sill parallel to the shoreline. The objective of the sill is to provide a partial barrier behind which an elevated (perched) beach is accreted. When successful, ~he perched beach backshore and foreshore acts to reduce the frequency of direct wave attack against the fastland and thereby reducing the erosion rate. In this ...
