Ground-Breaking Project Utlizing EKO Bag™ Concept to Support, Feed and Stabilize The Coastal Marsh Shoreline

Florham Park, NJ – Matrix New World Engineering, Inc., (Matrix), a private environmental and engineering consulting firm, and Restore The Earth Foundation, (REF), a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), are working together with multiple project partners to implement two coastal marsh/living shoreline restoration pilot projects in the mid-Atlantic region (Chesapeake Bay watershed in Maryland and Barnegat Bay watershed in New Jersey).  Both projects involve utilizing an innovative restorative technology, Bay-Saver Bags, to stabilize/restore severely eroding sections of shoreline with native coastal marsh vegetation. The media is invited to attend.

What: Living Shoreline pilot project in the Chesapeake Bay watershed’s Prospect Bay shoreline utilizing innovative restorative technology, Bay-Saver Bags™.
When: Sunday, April 27, 2014
Who: Lawrence Malizzi, PG, Vice President, Matrix will be available for questions           
Where: Chesapeake Bay Environmental Centre (CBEC); 600 Discovery Lane, Grasonville, Maryland
Why: The shoreline along the Chesapeake Bay watershed in Maryland is severely eroding and will be restored and stabilized with this pilot program.

The purpose of these pilot projects is to demonstrate that this technology can be successfully adapted to local conditions within the mid-Atlantic region, thus, providing a new tool and real-world insights for institutions/organizations seeking to undertake coastal restoration projects in the northeastern United States. 

According to Dennis Petrocelli, PG, Senior Vice President, Matrix, “These projects will serve to attain sustainable solutions to restore and protect ecological habitats.  Additionally, with the involvement of university students – we are training upcoming scientists’ with technologies to ensure the continuation of this work for future generations.” 

The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) selected the Chesapeake Bay watershed pilot project as a carbon footprint offset for their 2013 North America Annual Meeting.  Matrix and REF are collaborating with SETAC regional chapters, the CBEC and Towson University to restore over 150 linear feet of shoreline at the CBEC educational facility in Grasonville, Maryland, by installing double rows of Bay-Saver Bags™ that will be planted with seedlings of smooth cordgrass – a local native marsh grass.  This planting is scheduled for Sunday, April 27, 2014.  For information on this event, please contact Lawrence Malizzi, PG, Vice President, lmalizzi@matrixneworld.com.

In addition to providing effective shoreline restoration and valuable wildlife habitat, these pilot projects will also continue to serve as living classrooms.  Students from Maryland will actively assist in the plantings to establish the living shorelines and with the monitoring of the sites to evaluate the projects’ success.
