Description Property owners continue to have legitimate concerns about the effect of erosion on their land, therefore considerable interest has arisen in engineering measures that protect property from serious erosion, yet have less impact on shoreline ecology and on nearby beaches. This report was prompted largely by a desire to publicize these efforts and to encourage additional work in this area.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
