Description: Technical Note
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes a case study in which a Regional Sediment Management (RSM) strategy was developed in Mathews County, VA. The RSM effort began after severe shoaling had occurred in some of the County’s Federal navigation channels following several years of no maintenance dredging. The County realized that low funding levels for dredging low-commercial-use Federal channels would likely persist into the future. Yet the County desires continued US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE or Corps) involvement in future maintenance dredging. This CHETN describes how the RSM initiative facilitated discussions to identify opportunities for future dredging while respecting the performance-based budgeting guidance in the USACE low-commercial-use navigation program. This effort was supported by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) RSM Program, and the US Army Engineer District, Norfolk (NAO).
