Estuarine Shoreline Stabilization

Stabilization Method Selection Key

Sill

A sill is a shore-parallel, wood or rock structure that is designed to protect, enhance, or restore existing or newly planted wetland vegetation. Typically, these structures are constructed from rock/riprap or oyster bags, but other materials can be used. This is an environmentally friendly, low cost option that will allow wetland vegetation to migrate with sea level rise and maintain a natural "living shoreline".
