If you have a beachfront or lakefront home, you know that erosion can cause some serious problems. Not only is erosion generally harmful to the environment, but it can also be personally harmful to you if you are one of the hundreds who own coastal property. Erosion eats away at the beach, constantly washing away sand from the shore, leaving coastlines smaller and smaller.
The reason this could affect you in a much more personal way than you may have considered is that it can cause damage to structures that are located near the coast. Water creeping in closer can cause voids in the ground to form, leaving open spaces below your structure and causing soil to become less stable. This then leads to cracks, shifting, settlement, and leaks. Not only that, but it can harm tourism as well. As beaches disappear, people might visit your coastal place of business less frequently.
If you do not already have a seawall to keep your beach from eroding, invest in one right away. These structures are designed to prevent ocean waves from capturing the sand on your beach by providing a solid barrier.
