New Shoreline Resource: Ten Questions to Ask When Building Defenses to Protect Hudson River Shorelines

The Hudson River Estuary has numerous shoreline areas that stand to benefit from the implementation of new shore zone infrastructure. The term “infrastructure” represents built structures such as bulkheads, sills, and revetments, as well as enhancements to such structures such as planted vegetation. However, there are many factors to consider before making any decision regarding shore zone management, and Dr. David Strayer details many of these in Ten Questions to Ask When Building Defenses to Protect Hudson River Shorelines. These individual questions combine to form a thorough but simplified framework, which can assist stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds on how to make the best decisions when it comes to building and managing shore zone infrastructure along the Hudson.

The Hudson River Foundation provided funding for this brochure.
