Reef Balls were installed last fall as part of larger breakwater/sill demonstration project designed by Scott Hardaway et al. Wave transmission appears high because not enough rows of reef balls were used nor was there a tight spacing as specified by Reef Beach Company. Smooth cordgrass was planted too late for much growth but is at least still in place. Results should be clear by the end of next summer (2007). Oyster bag reef to left of balls appears to have already lost the planted marsh.
