S.C. Floodwater Commission: Living Shoreline Task Force


Living shorelines are nature-based approaches for shoreline protection. These stabilization techniques not only protect shorelines and infrastructure, they also conserve, create or restore natural shoreline habitats and ecosystem services. Living shoreline projects can be installed on tidal shorelines as well as freshwater ponds and lakes wherever erosion is a problem. Many shorelines are highly suitable for living shoreline practices depending on the location, land and water uses, erosion and flood risk, and other factors.
