Abstract: The purpose of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is to document development of a regional sediment budget and assessment of coastal sediment processes for a Regional Sediment Management (RSM) study along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) of West Galveston Bay from just north of Greens Lake to Chocolate Bay, TX. The loss of bay barrier islands is reducing the available placement options and may be leading to increased channel shoaling rates. Several design alternatives were investigated to reduce dredging requirements and prevent erosion of the bay islands that act as a barrier protecting the GIWW.
