Coastal Management Oceanfront Shorelines
Protecting Oceanfront Property from Erosion
The Coastal Resources Commission understands that coastal property owners want to protect their homes from erosion. In fact, the commission has rules that allow property owners to temporarily protect imminently threatened oceanfront structures. A structure is classified as imminently threatened when the erosion scarp reaches within 20 feet of it, or when site conditions increase the risk of imminent damage to the structure.
