Chapel's Cove Breakwater Mitigation Project

The project consists of the installation of an armour stone breakwater on the north side of Chapel's Cove beach in the Town of Harbour Main - Chapel's Cove - Lakeview. The scope of the project includes preparation of the ocean floor and dredging to install appropriate grounding and rock to build up a breakwater. The project aims to protect the area roads, beach and homes from storm surges and weather damages which have already been extreme and will continue to worsen with climate change.
