Case Study: Homeowner's Living Shoreline Stops Erosion

See how Virginia waterfront property owner Norman Colpitts uses a cost-effective living shoreline to protect his property while benefiting the environment. The living shoreline includes a small oyster reef to prevent erosion on his property. These oysters create wildlife habitat, filter and clean the water, and slow down waves before they erode the shore.
