The County road adjacent to Fishing Bay was threatened with collapse from waves and high tides. A Living Shoreline was constructed and planted to reduce the wave energy and protect the road. The new marsh is approximately 4,000 linear feet & provides 17 acres of marsh habitat. Over 300,000 plants were grown in EC's Nursery & planted by EC staff.
This project was made possible by a grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to Dorchester County.
