Abstract: Bodkin Island in the Chesapeake Bay is considered prime habitat for nesting black ducks; however, wind wave erosion is threatening the continued existence of the island. The existing 1-acre island will be increased by 4.8 acres through placement of dredged material to create nesting and brood habitat for black ducks. The enlarged island will have uplands, and high and low marshes with intertidai channels and pools with submerged aquatic vegetation. Riprap will be placed around the perimeter of the island to prevent wind wave erosion. The interdisciplinary project design report includes hydraulic and wave-climate numerical model studies, island design, habitat shaping, and vegetation selection.
