Living Shoreline Creation Through Beneficial Use of Dredged Material (Duluth, MN)

This EWN Action Project identifies and develops low-cost, shallow-water dredged material placement methods, utilizing both engineered and natural processes. These methods maximize the habitat value of the dredged material used for Areas of Concern habitat restoration projects. Finding cost-effective approaches for material handling that achieve the desired habitat is critical for development of future shoreline habitat restoration projects in the Great Lakes.
