Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) provides an example set of contract specifications for the construction of sediment-filled geotextile tube structures. This technical note represents the state of practice within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is an update of the material published in Wetlands Research Program Technical Note WG-RS-3.2, January 1999 (Davis and Landin 1999). While the example presented here can be used as a guide by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) District Contracting Officers preparing their own contract specifications, it is not intended as a substitute for knowledge regarding appropriate applications for geotextile tube structures; these applications are discussed in Davis and Landin (1997, 1998) and Curtis, Pollock and McLellan (2004).
