Dixon Shoreline restoration project, work in progress.

Dixon Shoreline restoration project, work in progress. The hillside was previously constructed of 6"x6" treated timbers. Replacement of that material is not allowed anymore within the shore land zoning area. The timbers were replaced using reinforced vegetated bio engineering methods. The soil bags in the photo are phase one. The soil bags will be planted with thousands of native plant plugs. The project is located on Lake Wisconsin in Columbia county.
