Abstract: This report provides a sand bypassing feasibility analysis for the St. Mary's River entrance channel. The study was conducted in connection with the development of the US Navy's Trident submarine base in King's Bay, GA. The analysis found that sand bypassing would not provide a significant reduction in the total amount of maintenance dredging required in the entrance channel, but could provide for a cost-effective means of dredging disposal and beach nourishment.
