Erosion has caused significant changes to the Portsea foreshore. Over the last three years Portsea beach has receded 20 to 25 metres.
Since 2010 DEPI has undertaken pier stabilisation works and constructed a 150 metre sandbag seawall to protect Portsea foreshore and minimise further erosion.
DEPI will soon be undertaking maintenance works to strengthen the sandbag seawall so it can continue to protect Portsea foreshore and community assets.
The decision to strengthen the sandbag seawall and maintain other existing seawalls follows the recent completion of the Portsea Prefeasibility Study.
