Estuarine Shoreline Stabilization Stabilization Method Selection Key

Welcome

Shoreline stabilization is defined as the use of structures, vegetation, or land management practices to provide protection of a shoreline from future or existing erosion. This website presents information on a variety of shoreline stabilization structures available to coastal property owners and provides a tool to determine the most appropriate stabilization method based upon shoreline type and other site characteristics.

Start at the beginning of the key and determine which statement most accurately reflects the conditions on your property. Move through the key as directed until you reach a specific recommendation or preferred alternative.
