Background: Tidal inlets provide a conduit for water exchange between the ocean and coastal bays, lagoons, and estuaries. They also serve as navigation routes for commercial and recreational vessels. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers maintains Federal inlets on all coasts of the United States and its territories. The Corps manages inlets primarily by construction of jetties and by dredging. Jetties stabilize the entrance and the entrance channel, and they also protect vessels from waves as they travel between the surf zone and deep water.
