Bayou Backer Erosion Control-
Below are the details for the Bayou Backer Erosion Control Project. To summarize,
The Bayou Backer Erosion Control project basically plants 6" wide strips of HDPE in patterns that have been proven to reduce shoreline erosion in the Bayou. Each strip is 11' - 17' long and floats when the tide is high, stopping some of the shoreline materials, as they pass, causing them to fall to the bottom.
During low tides and strong storm surges, the plastic actually lays down on the bottom, creating a cover that keeps the bottom from eroding.
