Building on the Shore

In this episode, we’re learning about coastal erosion and how it affects homes built near the shore. We explore the coastline with Hawai’i Sea Grant Extension Agent, Ruby Pap, and County of Kauai planner, Kaʻaina Hull, to see what happens when buildings are put too close to the ocean compared to buildings that are set-back, allowing natural beach action and sea-level rise to occur—without damaging properties.
