I never seen sheet pile that small before. It is also odd seeing the shorline like that not something I'am used to seeing.

Looks nice and clean. You just use a hoe-pack to put them in?

I can't imagine our DNR would go for that.

Sheet pile is used here from time to time but it is driven with a driver that grips the top of the sheet and vibes it in. The stuff is alot more enviormentally friendly than treated timbers.

Because it isn't 'natural'. They have a fit when people clear out all the way to the water, it's ridiculous. You can't even do 'boulderscaping' because that is 'landscaping'. Sorry I get wound up on this as I have lost a lot of potential work because of the DNR/Zoning.

Our DNR is pretty cool about doing seawall work, since they have to dredge the lakes it makes sense for them to allow people protect their shoreline from erosion. We still have to get permits from the township and DNR

Here they favor rip rap( large rocks) over sea walls because the boat waves just bounce off of the sea walls and the rip rap helps dissipate the energy.
