Abstract : The Shoreline Erosion Control Demonstration Act of 1974 provides that a 5-year program be developed to demonstrate and dissiminate information about low-cost means to prevent and control shoreline erosion. A site near Port Wing, Wisconsin was selected as one of the demonstration projects, and is the only site on Lake Superior. The study involves about 1,000 feet of the Lake Superior shoreline in Bayfield County, Wisconsin. An investigation was made on the damaged shoreline, low-cost measures for protection the shore, several types of structures for construction were selected, and coordination with interested agencies and the public was maintained. The studies were made in depth and detail necessary to determine selected structures, costs, land requirements, and local cooperation needs and in sufficient detail to begin plans and specifications upon approval of this report.
