NOAA Awards $800,000 for Living Shorelines
Shorelines are often stabilized with hard materials such as bulkheads and seawalls, ironically, these structures often increase the rate of coastal erosion and provide little habitat for fish and wildlife.

Living shorelines mimic nature by using plants, sand, and sometimes rock to stabilize banks while maintaining and improving valuable fish and wildlife habitat.

Sixteen homeowner associations, nonprofit organizations, and municipalities in Maryland and Virginia have been selected to be part of the program to develop living shorelines and increase public understanding of the technique.

Although the blooms, which can product potentially dangerous toxins, test samples were well below levels of concern, the Health Department warned lake users, especially children and pets, because they are more likely to swallow water when swimming, to avoid areas with dense amounts of algae.
