Connecticut Sea Grant announces a new website
intended to assist coastal Connecticut beach
property owners and beach associations with
hazards such as impacts from storms and associated
erosion and flooding. The new site helps users
evaluate threats and prepare to protect property
from further damage.   A variety of actions, depending
on the scale of damage and cost, are provided, including
options such as dune restoration, repairing seawalls,
moving landward or elevating structures. The new site is
accessible at

“We hope this website will be a valuable resource for both
coastal property owners and managers in helping to protect
infrastructure as well as the natural environment” said Dr. Juliana
Barrett, one of the site’s creators. Barrett is an associate coastal
habitat educator with Connecticut Sea Grant and UConn Extension.
