Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land and the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, or drainage and storm water runoff. Erosion has been a long standing issue for many coastal and waterfront communities across the country. Many coastal areas are facing chronic long-term shoreline erosion problems while continually being threatened with increased storm occurrence and rising sea levels. Recent studies have shown that the average erosion rates are upwards of 6 feet per year in and along the Gulf and 3 feet per year along the Atlantic Ocean.
