SUSTAINABLE BATHHOUSES ON THE BEACH
This summer a new project opened at Assateague Island National Seashore in Virginia. It is a low-cost and environmentally responsible system of roadways, bathhouses, and other facilities on an island that serves one million visitors annually. Innovative elements include lightweight cabana structures that can be dismantled and removed during storms and trailer-mounted photovoltaic panels to provide solar electricity. Next week we'll see what else awaits summer visitors to this Atlantic coast beach.
