A significant part of owning a lake house on Lake Martin is maintaining a sea wall. Today we’re going to look at a seawall under construction at Water’s Edge on the northwest side of Lake Martin, at the end of Coosa County Road 20. A company called Henderson and Coker of Alexander City is doing the work.
There are lots of kinds of seawalls (concrete, wooden, rip rap), and at Water’s Edge, the Henderson and Coker crew is pouring the footers for a concrete seawall that will wrap all the way around a big peninsula. This is about the biggest seawall construction I’ve witnessed, and I’m going to try and video it at different phases so you can see what’s involved.
Again, this is the first installment of what I hope will be a series, so stay tuned. I’m looking to film Henderson and Coker setting up the concrete forms soon.
