Preparing for Hurricane Season
Remember Sandy? These folks haven’t quite gotten over it. As we approach the 2015 hurricane season, LANDTECH’s Tom Ryder, together with David Roach of All Habitat Services, presented to the Fairfield Beach Residents Association on soft structure methods (such as mesh tubes planted with coastal grasses) for preventing beach erosion. All Habitat’s presentation showed a great cross-section of some of the evolving systems available for stabilizing shorelines in Connecticut. Hopefully, properties currently located hundreds of yards from the water won’t be beachfront this time next year.
