Project Details

This grant funded activities to stabilize dune erosion along the White Lake Channel Pier’s south side in Fruitland Township. At the start of the project, after windy days, the sand was often 2 feet deep on the pier. With the installation of the snow fence and dune grass planting, the dune stabilized and sand did not cover the pier. During the summer of 2006, no sand was shoveled or swept from the pier by Fruitland Township.
