Stabilization Method Selection Key

Marsh Toe Riprap Revetments

A marsh toe riprap revetment is a shore-parallel, sloping structure constructed against an eroding wetland shoreline to protect, enhance, or restore the marsh vegetation and protect the wetland roots from being undermined. Typically, these structures are constructed immediately waterward of the wetland 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".
