Is your house located on a lake and showing signs of serious erosion problems on your shoreline?
Signs of serious problems include:
- Bare soil on a steep, high shoreline bank
- Recession of the shoreline over a period of time
- Leaning or exposed roots on trees
- Large patches of muddy water near a lakeshore, or unusually muddy streams during periods of high water or following a rainstorm
To control shoreline erosion, some basic preventive guidelines can benefit you in the long run.
