SHORE|LINKS® was created in 2010 through a collaboration with Delta Land Services, a turn-key mitigation and land restoration company, and the Louisiana State University AgCenter. Because of Delta Land Services' role in wetland restoration and continual work with coastal land loss issues, the company recognized the need to create an effective erosion control product. The SHORE|LINKS® system was born through Delta Land Services' and LSU AgCenter's joint efforts, which focused on stabilization of Louisiana shorelines and a goal of creating a cost-effective living shoreline product.
Patented by the LSU AgCenter with exclusive license rights to Delta Land Services, the products comprise a lightweight, clay aggregate in a poly mesh fabric casing. The mesh material contains multiple, aggregate-filled lobes, which minimizes the weight of the units while maximizing unit height. These features allow for interlocking of the units and the entrapment of sediments to facilitate growth of vegetation. The SHORE|LINKS® system offers Articulating Revetments and Tiling Mats for armoring and re-vegetating shorelines and embankments and a Breakwater Log that aids in dissipation of wave energy at shorelines.
WHAT IS SHORE|LINKS®
The primary goal of the SHORE|LINKS® system is to provide a unique, cost- effective technology that prevents and repairs erosion damage through the creation of living shorelines in wetland, riparian and limnic environments.
