SOX Erosion Solutions developed an industry-leading expertise in restoring eroding shorelines on inland waterways caused by fluctuating water levels. Unstable land results in hazardous conditions for landscapers and lakefront residents. Eroding shorelines leave draining pipes, sprinkler systems, and underground lines exposed and subject to costly deterioration. Moreover, homes are frequently flooded by encroaching water.
Erosion is inevitable despite the best efforts of homeowner associations, municipalities, and golf course superintendents. There are several temporary strategies to control shoreline erosion, including installing sandbags, rocks, and trees. Shoresox and Dredgesox are long-term, eco-friendly erosion control solutions. Our pioneering technology effectively removes sediment from waterways and reclaims shorelines. The key advantage is that this innovative product increases shoreline stability naturally by planting and/or sodding directly through mesh armoring, establishing newly rooted vegetation. SOX Erosion Solutions are the most viable BMP to inhibit erosion. In layman’s terms, we are filling a huge “sock” with rich organic sediment to line and protect the shoreline. Once the SOX is fully rooted, it becomes an enduring part of the shoreline landscape greatly reducing further erosion. This sod also provides a filtration system, preventing eutrophication. Many municipalities and states are turning to these “living shorelines” as opposed to building cement walls, rip-rap or using other temporary strategies.
This problem will only continue to increase and we anticipate significant expansion here in Florida and in other states.
