Living Breakwaters, September 2019 Update

STATEN ISLAND - The Living Breakwaters expects to sign a contract this fall for the construction of a system of eight ecologically enhanced rubble-mound breakwaters, which will attenuate waves and counter the erosion of the shoreline at the southern tip of Staten Island. In-water construction is expected to begin in Summer 2021, and total construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2022.
