Temporary Cofferdams Will Change the Way You View a Shoreline Restoration Project

830432While the average person not immersed in the industry may not give it a second thought, we know that shorelines play a significant role in the ecological balance of the natural environment. Whether constructed by nature itself or engineered as in the case of a seawall or concrete barrier,  erosion can occur, and the shoreline must be restored. Our environmentally friendly, temporary cofferdams will save you time and money on your next shoreline restoration project.
