Building a galvanized steel seawall on Sylvan Lake_Oakland County_Michigan

During the Spring, Seaside Seawalls completed a gorgeous galvanized steel seawall for a customer situated on Sylvan Lake in Waterford, Michigan. Waterford is located in the greater Oakland County, and is home to approximately 71,707 residents. With many of these homes located around the numerous lakes that Oakland County’s “Lakeland paradise” has to offer, this is a popular area in which our team often works.   For this particular job, Seaside Seawalls was contacted in order to replace a pre-existing seawall, which was over 35 years old, rusting, and failing. Failing seawalls are something that we see a lot of in our line of work, as we are often contacted to replace old seawalls and construct newer ones in their place.

Here at Seaside Seawalls, we are proud to announce the recent completion of a black steel seawall on the beautiful Green Lake in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Green lake is a very calm and tranquil lake, as it is only 100 acres with no public access, and is therefore a peaceful paradise for the residential community who reside there. Seaside Seawalls was contacted in order to remove this particular resident’s existing seawall, as it was over 35 years old and therefore failing. However, any construction within the private residential community situated on Green Lake requires several permits. This meant that our team not only had to acquire a DEQ permit (as usual), but two additional permits. Since West Bloomfield is part of the greater Oakland County, we had to obtain an OCDC Permit (Oakland County Drain Commission) as well as a West Bloomfield Wetland Permit. The West Bloomfield Wetland Permit even Read the full article…

Black Steel Seawall and Boardwalk in Waterford Michigan

Seaside Seawalls is proud to announce the ongoing installation of a black steel seawall, brand new boardwalk, and the reattachment of dock slips for a residential client in Waterford, Michigan. Waterford belongs to the county of Oakland, and is home to approximately 71, 707 residents. Waterford is known as a “Lakeland Paradise”, boasting a total of 34 lakes that both residents and visitors frequently make use of. The community of Waterford has a total area of 35.3 square miles, with 31.3 square miles of that being land, and 4.0 square miles being water. Due to the harsh nature of Michigan winters, Seaside Seawalls was contacted in order to replace this residential property’s existing seawall, which was failing due to being short-sheeted. What this means is that after several years of exposure to harsh winter conditions, frost got under the short-sheeted pilings and pushed the previous seawall upwards (approximately 8 inches!).
