Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN summarizes monitoring results of the 1995 lake bed paving project conducted at Shoreham, MI, on Lake Michigan by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC, in collaboration with The U.S. Army Engineer District, Detroit. The CHETN also discusses the effectiveness of lake bed paving in reducing cohesive lake bed downcutting and mitigation of bluff erosion. The lake bed paving concept was examined as an innovative alternative to traditional revetment construction to protect the shoreline.
