Shoreline Protection Project in Marshfield up for Comment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, is proposing to undertake emergency shoreline protection by constructing a mixed sediment revetment in front of a 300-foot section of seawall in the Brant Rock/Hewitt’s Point section of Marshfield, Mass.

The purpose of the proposed project is to prevent further beach scour and protect the Brant Rock seawall so that it continues to provide protection for the backshore properties of Brant Rock and its associated roads and public infrastructure.

According to the Corps, protecting the seawall’s toe would ensure the wall does not fail in the future and continues to provide protection for the backshore properties of Brant Rock and its associated roads and other public infrastructure.

The proposed project to prevent further beach scour consists of the construction of a cobble/sand revetment (berm) along the seawall beginning near Franklin Street and extending approximately 300 feet to the south.

Approximately every five years the town will need to maintain the revetment by replacing lost sand gravel and cobble fill.

Deadline for sending comments on the proposed emergency shoreline protection project is August 3, 2017.
