The Shoreline Studies Program created a course for contractors and managers that summarized our research on the performance sills around Chesapeake Bay, showed existing sites, and provided the opportunity to work through site-specific design issues.
This information is for guidance only, and should not replace professional judgments made at specific sites by qualified individuals.
