Need help with shoreline erosion? Water pooling in your yard or basement? Are waves impacting your breakwall or rock rip-rap?

Check out the new virtual shoreline visit website of New York Sea Grant's Great Lakes program at www.nyseagrant.org/glcoastalvirtualsitevisit.

Waterfront property owners in need of erosion management expertise can request a virtual site visit by New York Sea  Grant Great Lakes Coastal Processes and Hazards Specialist Roy Widrig.There is no cost to use the new online resource that allows property owners to easily locate their property on a New York State map, describe erosion and flooding issues, and add photos of impacted areas.

"New York Sea Grant is pleased to make this online resource available to property owners to access Roy's expertise and to learn about options they can use to reduce current or future shoreline erosion," said Katherine Bunting-Howarth, Associate Director of New York Sea Grant and Assistant Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension, Ithaca, N.Y.

    If you want your business or brand to be more noticed in social media sites, appropriately link to other company's profile when you mention them on your posts. And in turn these companies that you have made mention of and linked to will even share the comments to their own sites making you more exposed to their own audiences; this will then escalate the number of you followers dramatically. This works the same way when people reciprocate to your acknowledgements, companies do too. social media
