GBA/GBF Webinar: Shorelines, Docks & Shoreline Structures

Webinar banner

The second of the “Extreme Water Levels: Impacts and Strategies” Webinar Series by the Georgian Bay Association (GBA) and Georgian Bay Forever (GBF), this webinar will focus on:

  1. Natural Coastal Processes: Naturalizing Shorelines – Hard vs. Soft. What to do (and not to do) on shorelines – what erosion impacts can we expect.
  2. Flooding – High Water Mark (Land/Water Interface). What to do about shoreline cabins, sheds, docks, and boathouses. How should they be reconfigured (raised or moved)? What are the impacts/regulations? Should the municipal high water level mark be changed?
  3. Storms, waves and wakes. What can we expect from higher wind strengths and more frequent and intense storms increasing wave action? What can be done to reduce harmful boat wakes?
  4. Coastal infrastructure – (also more in webinar 3). What are the impacts on municipal infrastructure, shoreline businesses (including marinas) contractors, and other services – of extreme high and low water levels? How can those impacted adopt?
