Geotube® Containment Structures Reinforce Sand Dunes Along Atlantic Ocean

Severe erosion along the New Jersey coastal community of Beach Haven threatened to destroy homes. To prevent further beach erosion and protect property, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection designed a reinforced sand dune with Geotube® containers along 400 feet of beach.

The design specified a tan-colored Geotube® containers to blend into the natural beachscape. Also, specified was a tan geotextile shroud adding further protection for the Geotube® container in the event that a severe storm removes sand covering the tube, and to provide additional protection to tubes during maintenance on the beach using mechanical equipment.
