​​​​Shoreline Protection & Restoration

Sample Projects

Natural coastal erosive forces along with boating activity and waterfront development are constantly impacting and eroding our shorelines.  BayLand provides expertise to plan, permit, design and oversee construction of shoreline protection and restoration projects.  We use a variety of design techniques including non-structural natural approaches such as living shorelines and structural techniques su​ch as revetments and bulkheads.  Our designs are tailored to individual site characteristics and special effort is made to achieve each client's need and objective.  BayLand prides itself in its ability to transform ideas into reality.  Our expertise in shoreline protection and restoration include living shorelines, beach replenishment, marsh creation, coir logs, stone groins, segmented sills and breakwaters, revetments, stone reinforcement bulkheads and jetties.

Cecil County, Maryland
BayLand performed an assessment of 8,200 LF of shoreline for this high energy area in the Chesapeake Bay.  Performed topographic and hydrographic surveys, coastal analysis, geotechnical investigations, environmental assessment and biological surveys.  BayLand prioritized shoreline reaches and obtained all federal and State permits and completed the design for 2,900 LF of revetment for the shoreline with the highest priority ranking.  Project also included permitting and design of a new concrete boat ramp, two launching piers, parking area and stormwater management using Environmental Site Design (ESD).  BayLand provided construction management services and as-built documentation.

Anne Arundel County, Maryland
The project consisted of stabilizing approximately 1,200 LF of highly eroding shoreline through living shoreline techniques including segmented stone sill, stone breakwater, stone marsh edging, clean sand fill and marsh grass plantings.  BayLand completed permitting, design bidding and construction management and inspection services for the project.  The project was funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).  Click here to view a brochure on the entire project.  Click here to view a brief video of the project.
Holland Point Shore Erosion Control
Anne Arundel County, Maryland
The project provided protection to an 8,092 LF eroding shoreline through the design and eventual construction of a complete, functional and economic shore erosion control project.  Services provided by BayLand included: provided design for the stone reinforcement and timber bulkhead repair, acquisition of all necessary permits, preparation of construction drawings and specifications, and related construction bid documents.​
​​Tydings Island Shoreline Stabilization
Harford County, Maryland
The project consisted of stabilizing approximately 1,000 LF of shoreline through 500 LF of stone revetment and 500 LF bulkhead with vinyl sheeting with concrete cap.​
Fishing Creek Farm, Cherry Tree Cove Shore Erosion Control
Anne Arundel County, Maryland
The project consisted of stabilizing approximately 530 LF of low marshy shoreline and 630 LF of beach through breakwaters, segmented sills and terminal groins.  BayLand provided planning, permitting, design and support services for this Chesapeake Bay Trust funded living shoreline project.​
Little Magothy River Bulkhead
Anne Arundel County, Maryland
BayLand provided engineering services for remediation of a failed inlet and entrance way into the Little Magothy River.  The design consisted of a combination of jetty/bulkhead structure, flank protection, a stone sill, and marsh plantings.  The scope included preparation of permit applications and tracking of Federal, State and local permits; coastal and geotechnical investigations; topographic survey; design development and final design; preparation of construction documents; and bidding support.​
