Products to help with Beach Erosion
Popular Beach Restoration Options
One of the most popular solutions to beach erosion issues is something known as "beach restoration" or "beach nourishment". However, this is not only a temporary solution, but it is also a controversial subject. Sand must be trucked in from other sources and filtered for sediment. This sand, too, will eventually makes its way into the air or the water, bringing it back to its eroded state.
Another popular solution is to build seawalls, revetments, and jetties along the shoreline. According to Dr. Ken Ruben , assistant professor of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Hawaii, "[t]hese have a negative effect on beaches because once sea water reaches them, it bounces off them with more energy than a wave washing back off a normal sand beach."
Good Long Term Solutions
So what is a good solution? Nothing beats beach erosion like natural vegetation. Natural fibers, like Coir , can help propagate the growth and provide stability to root systems. If a seawall must be built, the fabric underlay should be a geotextile. See our 7 simple water pollution solutions.
