    How to use "Seawall" in context?

    Inland seas always have a seawall at their shores as a natural barrier to protect their land. The first seawall was built along the Mediterranean coast of Europe. However, the first seawall in the United States was not built until 1885 on Staten Island.

    The purpose of a seawall is to protect the land it surrounds from the waves and tides. A seawall is also necessary to keep out sea flooding. A seawall can be built in many different ways, but the most common is to build a concrete or asphalt wall with a steel grate in the middle.
