Abstract : The study investigated the need for and viability of providing effective and economical means of arresting beach and shore erosion and reducing flood damages along the Ohio Shore of Lake Erie between the Michigan-Ohio State line and Marblehead, Ohio. Approximately twelve areas which have experienced flooding were identified. None were recommended for further study because damages experienced were insufficient to offset anticipated construction costs. Four areas were identified which had experienced shoreline or beach erosion. Of these, two were eliminated for lack of economic justification and two were recommended for further study. These two, both State owned Parks, are at Maumee Bay and East Harbor. Feasibility Studies are currently underway to determine ways to reestablish beaches and protect the shorelines at these two locations against future erosion. (Author)
