Riverview Park Living Shoreline

Seaford, DE

Working for the City of Seaford, ForeSite prepared construction drawings for a living shoreline in Riverview Park, along the banks of the tidally influenced, commercial waterway, the Nanticoke River.  The existing rip rap armored bank was failing and the shoreline eroding.  The implemented design included native shoreline vegetation, a boardwalk, and a rip rap breakwater to mitigate the unnatural wave action present at the site due to the commercial waterway and adjacent recreational boat ramp.
