Page 20 THE QUODDY TIDES 9 February, 2018 Pleasant Point shore The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District is proposing to sta- bilize approximately 1,500 feet of shore- line that is eroding at Pleasant Point. The erosion is threatening to damage homes and other facilities. The purpose of the proposed emergen- cy shoreline protection project is to pre- vent ongoing shoreline erosion in front of tribal housing, a church and an elderly center by constructing a 1,500-foot-long riprap revetment. Tribe-owned facilities may be at risk from further erosion unless immediate action is taken to stabilize the shoreline. The 36-foot-wide stone riprap revet- ment design consists of a geotextile fabric overlain by an 18-inch layer of core stone, an 18-inch layer of under stone and a 42- inch thick layer of armor stone riprap on a 1:1.5 vertical to horizontal slope.
