Project Description

This project will employ living shoreline techniques that utilize natural and/or artificial breakwater material to reduce shoreline erosion and provide habitat off Eastpoint, Florida (Franklin County). This area has been the location of previous successful living shoreline projects that contribute to shoreline protection. Combining these objectives, this project will create breakwaters to reduce wave energy, increase benthic secondary productivity, and create salt marsh habitat. Project activities include expanding an existing breakwater by creating up to 0.3 miles of new breakwater that will provide reef habitat and creating approximately 1 acre of salt marsh habitat.
