The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) commissioned Angler Environmental to restore and enhance a degraded dike located at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Significant erosion was evident along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay, which was bordered by “Wildlife Drive,” a scenic roadway used by visitors.  To safeguard the bank from further erosion and maintain the integrity of the roadway, Angler Environmental installed riprap, coir fiber logs, Spartina plantings, and a native seed mixture to stabilize the main façade of the dike facing the Chesapeake Bay.
