Bank Stabilization in Tidally Influenced Areas
Due to the dynamic nature of our area, erosion of upland can occur anywhere along tidal river and creek banks. Protecting the upland bank may be necessary to preserve the integrity and stability of your property. Bank stabilization techniques can include hard structures like bulkheads and seawalls, or softer techniques like riprap placement or living shorelines techniques. In any case of bank stabilization projects occurring below the high tide line or within a marsh jurisdictional area a permit is required.
Contact your local permit coordinator at either our Brunswick headquarters office at (912) 264-7218 or at our Richmond Hill satellite office with questions or to schedule a pre-application site visit.
