Artificial reef to benefit surfing, protect shoreline
A joint venture between the EPA, the Army Corps of Engineers and several local agencies will create the first artificial reef in the US, off the coast of El Segundo, CA. The artificial reef will be used in restoring surf and prevent beach erosion in the area. Sand-filled geotubes or bags built in V shape away from the shoreline will be used in constructing the reef. The structure slices the water to create two breakers. The speed of the wave is determined by the internal angle of the V, and the wider the angle, the faster the wave becomes.
