Ecobeach drainage system at Maarup, Denemarken

Posted on 25 October 2018

A historic church at Maarup, Denmark was endangered by the erosion of the nearby coast. The coastal erosion came to a stop and the beach widened due to the installation of Ecobeach drainage system. The Ecobeach drainage system was removed in 2006 which resulted in the restart of the coastal erosion. Meanwhile the church has unfortunately vanished into the sea.
