Coastal Restoration Projects
Frontignan is located in south of France, along the Mediterranean coast. The coastline is subject to significant retreat. In order to limit the risk of erosion and marine submersion, the French administration (Thau Agglo) has awarded ARTELIA to propose and study appropriate solutions and to supervise the works.
The following solutions of protection have been selected: reinforcement of existing coastal structures; construction of additional coastal defence works; construction of a new reinforced sand dune in the back of the beach; beach nourishment.
The article presents the coastal sediment processes analysis, the works supervision and the environmental monitoring.
