Abstract: This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regional Sediment Management Technical Note (RSM-TN) reviews the initial sand bypassing effort conducted by the State of Hawaii, Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR), at Kikiaola Light Draft Harbor (KLDH). DOBOR, as the harbor’s non-federal sponsor, implemented a sand bypass project in 2014 to help address the issues of sediment accretion up-drift of the harbor and erosion of the down-drift beaches. This RSM-TN reviews the results of the bypassing effort by performing a shoreline change analysis, reviewing beach profile monitoring reports, and quantifying recent harbor shoaling. The intent is to pave the way for beneficial use of dredged material at KLDH. Recommendations are made with respect to future sand bypass efforts and potential remediation for Kikiaola Gulch, which discharges fine grained terrestrial sediments into the harbor basin. The non-federal sponsor of this RSM study is the State of Hawaii, Department of Land and Natural Resources, Office of Conservation and Coastal Lands.
