Sea Isle City, New Jersey
Product: Geotube® Marine Structures Technology
Application: Sand Dune Cores
Location: Sea Isle City, New Jersey
The beach town needed to protect their shoreline and the state highway behind it.
Geotube® marine containment technology was selected for the shoreline project. 4,000 linear feet of Geotube® containers were installed on the beach [photo 2]. The containers were filled six feet high using the hopper method with imported sand [photo 1].
The Geotube® containers withstood heavy wave action [photo 3]. The units and the scour apron stayed intact after extremely high tides and heavy wave attacks [photo 4].
