Living Shoreline Inc. (LSSI) has over 100 years of combined experience in its representative fields of Peer-Reviewed Research & Development. We have produced Fully-Patented, Proven Technology and for over 20 years have deployed it in the field. Our Project Success Rate, to date, is 100% - unprecedented in the field. Productive, Durable, & Stable Marine Habitat that mitigates and, in many cases, reverses shoreline erosion.
Solid wall, submerged structures do not dissipate energy. The typical flow of wave action causes energy to be forced downward & sideways which actually causes MORE erosion on the seaward side of the structure.
Eventually the constant outward and sideway flow undermines the seawall footer causing it to loose stability, erode, and fail.
The EcoWAD, is THE seawall solution. Like all other WAD systems, the key is attenuation - the ability to dissipate the energy from oncoming wave forces and convert it to energy that strengthens the structure and enhances the surrounding aquatic environment.
Eco WAD® Another LSSI Solution
Eco WAD® the Total Coastal Seawall, Shoreline, & Low Lying, Historical Flooding Area Management System.
The 'No' Erode EcoRoad Concept
Eco WAD® system is an excellent solution for barrier islands and low-lying areas with historical washout profiles. By enclosing NEW & existing roadways with the Eco WAD® system, intermittent flooding is mitigated by attenuating sudden, violent wave & flood energy from inclement storm swells, inland & coastal flooding, and even hurricanes.
WAD®s are built to accelerate rapid marine growth on all hard substrate surfaces, both inside and outside the structure, and are specifically engineered to act as wave attenuation devices to protect the world’s coastlines and enhance marine Biomass.
Stop, even Reverse Erosion and promote beach accretion and natural shoreline. Shield and boost natural Biomass.
Promote Stable Beach Habitat, negligible live bottom impact; passive accretion, and ecological enhancement.
Portable, Fluid, and Diverse Array Design. Cost effective & adapted to meet each individual client's site-specific needs.
