Surfrider stopped the Province of Buenos Aires from building “T” jetties at Constitution beach. The “T” jetties that were a common “solution” to erosion problems are really supposed to be breakwaters (lateral jetties offshore). However the contractors put in roads to construct the breakwaters and never removed them, thus worsening the situation even more. Now government officials are considering other technologies to stop erosion.
