Perdido Bay Pocket Beach 2019

South Coast Engineers designed a pocket beach system to stabilize over 1,000 feet of Perdido Bay shoreline, including an eroding point, Suarez Point, using beach sand placement and new rock headlands to stabilize the new sand. This project has preserved the intertidal sandy beach habitat while stopping the erosion. This beach, built instead of a bulkhead, survived Hurricane Sally (2020) when most of the bulkheads on the Alabama shore of Perdido Bay failed.
