Coastal America: Northeast Coastal Strategyby William A. Hubbard, Environmental Resources Branch, United States,
Lawrence R. Oliver, Environmental Resources Branch, United States,
Abstract: The Northeast Regional Implementation Team of the national Coastal America effort has focused its efforts on the restoration of constricted tidal marsh systems. The disposal of dredged material and transportation corridor development (rail and highway) over the past several decades has decreased the tidal inundation of numerous northeast coastal marshes. Federal, state and local agencies are collaborating to prioritize sites and develop ecologically coast effective solutions. An example of a regional (eastern Connecticut shoreline) approach and a site specific (Galilee, R.I.) restoration project are presented.
