Field Notes: Washington State Seawall Stabilization

Technical services manager David Dingler is on his way back from Washington state. He’s been providing on-site technical support for a massive residential seawall stabilization project on Padilla Bay, southwest of Bellingham. A team from Nicholson Construction out of California is pumping Prime Flex 920, a rigid structural polyurethane foam, into voids behind the seawall. In some places, voids are nearly six feet deep and the erosion has caused significant cracks in the stone wall. Work is underway to stabilize the wall below five residences. The homeowners banded together to tackle the threat to their property as a group. We’ll provide a full case study as the project progresses.
