The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act is fighting land loss by utilizing several restoration techniques for land preservation and creation. Some of CWPPRA’s restoration techniques include:

  1. Barrier Islands
  2. Marsh Creation
  3. Shoreline Protection
  4. Hydrologic Restoration
  5. Terracing
  6. Freshwater and Sediment Diversions
