Marsh Bank Erosion has been documented along many sections of the Great Marsh. Over fifteen feet per year have been lost in some areas of Essex Bay and Plum Island Sound. Twenty-four bank erosion monitoring stations have been established to determine rates and causes of loss. The Partnership will continue to expand the network of monitoring stations and implement mitigation strategies to protect the marsh from future loss.
