The applicant proposes to construct five variable length stone breakwaters, six variable length stone sills, a stone spur, and a 352 linear foot stone revetment to provide long-term stabilization along an eroding shoreline. Approximately 15000 cubic yards of beach quality sand will be utilized as beach nourishment landward of the breakwaters and sills. Intertidal zones will be planted with Spartina alterniflora while backshore areas will be planted with Spartina patens. No impacts to vegetated wetlands are associated with the shoreline work. The project is located along the north shore of the Rappahannock River in Richmond County, Va.
