​Same Beach Different Conditions

Windy and Turbulent Day

When the waves are large so is the amount of energy in them. The water and waves are discolored here because the energy from the waves is carrying sand. We want to prevent the wave energy from scouring the beach, or carrying the sand (and eventually the beach!) out into the lake.

Calm and Clear Day

This is the same beach on a calm day. Notice the sand lines along the pilings. These jetties slowed down the returning water enough to trap the sand. Geo jetties reverse the process of scouring. Water energy flowing over the top is slowed enough to let the sand fall out. You can't stop the water, but you can use the water to deposit sand vs. scour.
