Two fingers of an Undercurrent Stabilizer system, placed several miles south of a harbor-jetty-breakwater complex. A deltaic bulge, one characteristic shoreline response to system installation, is still evident more than a decade after installation. The restored protective beach has become a 'feeder' of benefit to adjacent shorelines.
1. Prior to treatment. 2. Two years post treatment, the top of one Undercurrent Stabilizer unit can still be seen running across the elevating beach. 3. More than 13 years after installation, dune formation on the expanded shoreline is apparent.
Homes were in imminent danger along this Lake Michigan shoreline prior to system installation. Seawalls and groin fields had failed in the area. More than a decade after treatment. There have been no further problems. Notice the new dune formation and vegetation growing along the bluff ridge where there was once deep water.

A small installation is shown of the technology, placed against and in front of a sea wall. More than 13 years after installation, the treated area and adjacent shorelines are stabilized with the sand building up naturally.

A homeowners group treated approximately one thousand feet of shoreline along this Florida barrier island. Sections of the coast had been losing as much as thirty feet of bluff to yearly erosion. Upon installation, erosion ceased. The yearly accretion rate has been approximately twenty feet per year post installation. The area is now one of the most active turtle nesting sites in the state.

Much of the installation process takes place underwater. More than 14 years after system installation.
1. Pre-installation, severe erosion was taking place. 2. Two years post installation of Undercurrent Stabilizers. 3. The beach continues to build and expand over a decade after treatment.
A few miles south of a large federal harbor structure, unnatural ongoing erosion threatens homes and dunes. Large groin fields have failed in the area. The visible derelict groin marks the seaward position of the bluff when the groins were installed. The Murray Road homeowners association installed Undercurrent Stabilizers. Erosion ceased upon installation. The area remains naturally accretional despite the nearby federal harbor and its jetties. The Stabilizers and old groin structures have been buried by rising sand levels due to this technology.
A homeowners association located next to a Federal Harbor on Lake Michigan installed the Stabilizer technology as homes were lost or moved as they became threatened by channel-structure-induced erosion. More than a decade after installation, the area remains stable to accretional with new vegetation growing on top and in front of the old structures.
