Why You Need Shoreline Restoration on Your Northeast Wisconsin Property
Updated: Feb 21
Lakeshore restoration is one of the many services we offer here at Orion, and it's not just for looks!
Shoreline erosion has become a serious issue on the bodies of water of Wisconsin, especially with the warm Springs and heavy rainfall over the past few years. Although we all love the look of a lush lawn area up to the lakeshore, this can cause a lot of erosion on your property. And, according to the DNR, it's a landowner's responsibility to plan & implement erosion control on the property.
About RipRap Erosion Control:
At Orion, we often use the riprap erosion control method. According to the Wisconsin DNR, riprap can be defined as, "Riprap is a blanket of appropriately sized stones, fitted to the slope and shape of the shoreline, extending from the toe of the slope to a height needed for long-term durability."
