Description: Technical note
General: Revetments are used to protect ocean, estuary, and lake shorelines from wave attack. Because of increased construction in many coastal areas, some additional revetments may be needed along higher valued exposed embankments. For many of these revetments quarrystone is a common building material because it is often locally available, relatively inexpensive, and does not require complex construction techniques. On projects with a high degree of public access, minimum stone size of between 400 and 500 lb may be required to prevent vandalism.
