<< The Before

Wave erosion, running water erosion, and ice flows are major problems in our waterways. The erosion process creates some of the most dramatic changes to our landscape and the loss of personal property. The ice flows cause similar damage.

Erosion and ice flows can become critical safety issues and property maintenance problems when storms are severe, wind gusts are prevalent, and water levels become high.

If the shore, river bank, or embankment is left unprotected, erosion can undermine the banks and wash out the shore lines. Ice flows can crush or rip apart waterfront structures. Structural alternatives such as bulkheads (seawalls), retaining walls, revetments (riprap), breakwaters, and groins may be the solution for you problem. Alternatives that are less permanent to help minimize the rate of erosion and associated damage include revegetation, beach building, bluff drainage, slope regrading, and relocation of existing structures.

<< Reputation & Experience

Sutterby Construction Services has been installing erosion and ice damage control structures since the 1960s. In areas with severe erosion—where other erosion control methods have failed—we have installed alternative structures with long-term success and client satisfaction. We work closely with NYSDEC, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the NYS Department of State to provide a structure that meets our clients needs while providing the natural attributes that are environment-friendly.
