Algae Overgrowth An overabundance of algae occurs in ponded areas of Pipe Creek, where animal waste from geese washes into the creek. Increased nutrients from the waste causes algae to grow and bloom.

permeable pavers Permeable pavers are brick-like materials that are manufactured in a variety of shapes. Pavers fit together like tiles and are set with small gaps between them, creating grooves for water to infiltrate the soil beneath. Permeable pavers reduce stormwater runoff volume and flow rate, and increase groundwater infiltration and recharge. best management practice,stormwater management,pollutant discharge,elimination,green,landscape

Sea-level Rise and Storm Surges on Barrier Islands Conceptual diagram illustrating the effects of sea-level rise and storm surges on barrier islands. When sea-level rise combines with strong storms, barrier islands experience high storm surges, which increases the effects of flooding and erosion.

Cages protect seabeach amaranth (Amaranthus pumilus) from grazing A sensitive species, seabeach amaranth is aided at Assateague Island National Seashore by a management program that protects a portion of the annual population from being eaten and trampled by horses and deer so they can mature and produce seeds. Conservation efforts have helped the plant population increase to nearly 2,200 individuals in 2007. plant,native,endangered,Maryland,beach,overwash

Shoreline erosion control Conceptual diagram illustrating a hardened shoreline vs a natural shoreline. The hardened shoreline has concrete rip-rap or a sea wall. It can be very costly and can also interrupt natural shoreline processes and sand movement that can lead to increased erosion downdrift from the structure. A natural shoreline incorporates native vegetation with a buffer strip of sand and/or fiber logs. It filters runoff and traps sediment, actually widening the beach, and providing valuable shoreline habitat for wildlife. diagram,climate change,sea level rise,flooding,protection,erosion,shoreline,buffer,rip rap,bulkhead
