Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Additional tests were conducted in an existing hydraulic model of Crescent City Harbor to determine the optimum length and location of a breakwater system for providing sufficient protection for an expansion to the small-craft harbor capacity. It was concluded that of the several plans tested a breakwater beginning at the +7.5 contour about 900 ft east of Elk Creek and extending southerly into the harbor for approximately 1050 ft, then angling southeasterly and continuing for an additional 900 ft, in conjunction with a northwesterly extension to the existing inner breakwater of 400 ft, would provide the best protection for the problem area.
