Product: Geotube® Marine Structures Technology
Location: Progresso, Mexico
Many beaches of Progresso were destroyed by a series of hurricanes in 2005. The community needed to protect their remaining beaches and start to rebuild the shoreline.
Geotube® containers were installed along the shoreline as part of the restoration project [photo 2]. After the units were installed, the beachfront began to recover.
Eventually the Geotube® units were almost completely covered by the renourished beach [photo 3]. The sands continue to grow for this coastal area [photo 4].
