MARINA WETLANDS PROTECTION - 2017

THE WETLANDS SPIT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE MARINA HAS BEEN UNDERGOING ACCELERATED EROSION FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS
THIS SPIT PROTECTS ALMOST HALF THE MARINA FROM WAVE ACTION, SO WE
NEEDED TO MAKE THE SIZEABLE INVESTMENT NECESSART TO TRY TO PROTECT IT.

AFTER REVIEWING A VARIETY OF RIP-RAP OPTIONS, WE DECIDED TO TRY SOMETHING
RELATIVELY NEW: A COMBINATION OF READY-REEF CONCRETE PYRAMIDS
AND A MARINA MANUFACTURED 100' LONG FLOATING WAVE ATTENUATOR.

ON APRIL 5, 2017, READY-REEF INC. BEGAN TO INSTALL THE
CONCRETE PYRAMIDS

THE 2' HIGH, 700 LB REEFS ARRIVE AND ARE UNLOADED
