Flood Measures: Ecological Infrastructure - Ecological Marine Structures


Ecological Marine Structures
DESCRIPTION:
Ecological marine structures refer to enhancements to existing or new structures that facilitate the development of marine habitat. These features augment the amount of light and/or habitat area and quality within the tidal range..


WATER LEVEL RANGE:

Intertidal to subtidal

SHORELINE LOCATION: Varies
DESIGN LIFE

Varies


ADAPTABILITY

Medium

IMPACT ON THE WATERFRONT

Varies

CONSTRUCTION COST

TBD


COASTAL FLOOD HAZARDS MITIGATED:
Sea Level Rise
Storm Surge
Groundwater
Waves
Erosion


Types of Ecological Marine Structures:
Ecological Concrete Structure

Increase Light Below Deck
