Description A dynamic revetment was constructed at North Cove, Washington in December 2018 to prevent further erosion of the land. The Washington State Department of Ecology is conducting topographic surveys to monitor how the revetment and beach face change over time. In addition, over 300 rocks were tagged to track their movement. The revetment has proven to be dynamic in nature - the rocks move and respond to the hydrodynamic forces, while dissipating wave energy, protecting the upland, and facilitating the deposition of sand at the toe of the revetment during moderate wave and water level conditions.
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.
