Abstract: Grays Harbor model, a fixed-bed model with provisions for future conversion to a movable-bed model, was constructed to scales of 1:500 horizontally and 1:100 vertically and reproduced all of Grays Harbor, the Chehalis River to the head of tidal influence (South Montesano), and a portion of the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the harbor entrance. The primary purposes of the overall model study will be to determine the effects of rehabilitation of both the north and south jetties, investigate the stability of Point Chehalis, determine the effects of enlarging and realigning the navigation channel, and locate suitable dredge spoil disposal areas. The flushing rate and dispersion characteristics of waste materials discharged into the system will also be investigated. The model verification tests described herein indicated that the model hydraulic and salinity regimens were in satisfactory agreement with those of the prototype for comparable conditions. It therefore can be assumed that the model will provide quantitative answers concerning the effects of the proposed improvement plans on the hydraulic and salinity regimens of the estuary.
