Some of the usual suspects in Alabama and Mississippi have been busy developing technical guidance on living shorelines. What’s different about these new documents is that they are aimed at property owners and contractors instead of practitioners, scientists, engineers, etc. Our goal, as a community of living shorelines practitioners, has been to push some of our knowledge down to these underserved groups in hopes that they might make use of our regional general permits for living shorelines in Alabama and Mississippi.

Well after a couple of years of hard work (and some delays), I’m happy to say that they are finally available. Please click on the links below to download the PDFs. These projects involved too many friends and agencies to list here in this post, so please be sure to review the acknowledgments in each document. However, I would like to express our collective gratitude to the primary funding agencies (NOAA and GOMA) as well as the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and the Southern Environmental Law Center for their support and hard work.

    Excellent resource!

  • What a fantastic document! Thank you all for all the hard work that obviously went into these. Just an FYI, my first attempt to open the property owner doc failed, but it worked on my click on “RELOAD”. My attempt to open the Contractor doc also failed, and also failed upon clicking on “RELOAD”. It appears to complete loading, and then gives me the “failed to upload” message.

    In any event, we will add these to the “additional resources” section of the LS Academy webpage. Thanks again. Tracy Skrabal
