Abstract: Little River Inlet is a shallow coastal inlet located on the Atlantic Ocean along the North Carolina-South Carolina border. Construction by the US Army Engineer District, Charleston (SAC) of a dual jetty system at Little River Inlet began in March 1981 and was completed in July 1983. An extensive monitoring program began in March 1981 to evaluate the performance of the jetty system and document its effect on local shore lines. The program included beach profile surveys, inlet hydrographic surveys, aerial photography, structural surveys, site inspection, and Littoral Environment Observation (LEO) data collection. The Coastal Engineering Research Center has conducted an analysis of the monitoring data collected at Little River Inlet between 1978 and 1989. The objectives of this analysis were to summarize initial beach and nearshore response to the project, and assist SAC in developing dredged material management plans. Additionally, the option of opening the weir section of either jetty was evaluated, and recommendations were made on continued project monitoring.
