Lakeshore Erosion Hazard Mapping Guthrie, R. H.

Abstract: Lakes offer opportunities for residential and recreational use. Shoreline developments, however, can negatively affect fi sh and fi sh habitat, the foreshore, and the very setting that makes them so attractive to people in the fi rst place. This is particularly true for lakes that have fl uctuating water levels. The vulnerability of the lakeshore to erosion is varied, but erosion protection measures tend to be applied in a blanket approach?an approach that is neither cost effective, environmentally friendly nor typically required. This report presents a method for determining and mapping the shoreline erosion hazard around a lake and suggests appropriate protection measures. It is meant to help lakeshore owners and planners choose where to place their protection efforts, and offers alternatives that will help maintain the ecological integrity of the land-water interface, while protecting property and property owners. The fi rst part of the report describes the methodology for determining and mapping lakeshore erosion hazards; the second is a conceptual tool kit for dealing with erosion where it occurs in a manner that retains some of the biological integrity of the lakeshore. The report does not specifi cally address individual concerns, nor is it meant to restrict the possibility of other innovative designs not considered in the tool kit.
