$60 million living oyster reef aimed at reducing waves on Staten Island’s South Shore | SILive.com

Who would have thought it?  Living oyster reef breakwaters in New York.  It’s not just us fools down the bayou anymore.  With Rising seas, impaired estuaries and threatened water & food security, coastal resiliency is going to be the interstate project of our lifetime.

From the mayor:

“In this city alone, 400,000 people live in the floodplain, more than any other major city in America. We are the ultimate coastal city. We are who we are because we’re the ultimate coastal city. We wouldn’t trade that in for anything in the world,” de Blasio said. “But it requires of us a new level of preparation and resiliency.”
