Sea Isle City, New Jersey


Product:         Geotube® Marine Structures Technology

Application:   Sand Dune Cores

Location:       Sea Isle City, New Jersey

Installation:   1997


The Challenge:

The beach town needed to protect their shoreline and the state highway behind it.

The Solution:

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 Results:

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].
