BLUFF STABILIZATION AND PROTECTION ON THE GREAT LAKES; A CASE STUDY
AbstractThe focus of this project was to design a shoreline remediation system that would stabilize and protect an eroding bluff on Lake Ontario. The significance of this project is the innovative techniques utilized to stabilize a 100-foot-high, almost 45º angle bluff from the erosive forces caused by waves, wind, groundwater, and rain. Geosynthetics, blown on compost material, and the installation of an irrigation system were all tools that were utilized for bluff stabilization, while an armor stone revetment was used to protect the toe of the bluff. This project may be used as an example for other shorelines experiencing similar bluff failure and erosional issues.
