Barren Island before the planting. The work at Barren Island provided a valuable lesson. Geotubes were placed around the perimeter of the island to form a wave break but they failed and the dredge material was washed away behind the tubes. Wave breaks in the future will be constructed of rock, which is more expensive, but a better alternative.
