Description: Technical Note
Abstract: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes Regional Sediment Management (RSM) activities and investigations performed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Baltimore District (NAB), along Maryland’s Atlantic Coast at Fenwick Island, the Ocean City Inlet, and the Assateague Island National Seashore. An evaluation was performed of beach renourishment and sand bypassing along the Atlantic Coast of Maryland at the Assateague Island shoreline to develop a holistic approach to understanding the overall sediment transport system. This evaluation was undertaken to investigate the fate of dredged material placed along the shore, and the short- and long-term impacts of that placement to the ebb shoal. A better understanding of these impacts will assist in predicting the ability of the ebb shoal to replenish itself, to estimate the effects dredging will have on the borrow area compared to the overall system, and ultimately to optimize NAB dredging operations with better informed decisions regarding where to dredge.
