Abstract: This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regional Sediment Management (RSM) project focused on exploring innovative solutions to shoaling and sediment management issues in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW), specifically at the Bolivar Flare, Texas (Figure 1). The GIWW Bolivar Flare is a shoaling hotspot that requires annual maintenance dredging. The objectives of this RSM study were twofold: (1) to identify potential measures that will reduce maintenance costs and (2) to identify potential beneficial use (BU) options in the area.
