Abstract: The US Army Engineer District, San Francisco (SPN) and the Coastal Inlets Research Program conducted a pilot study to consider various placement locations for dredged material in vicinity of Noyo Harbor, CA. Approximately 30,000-40,000 cu yd/yr of beach-quality sediment is dredged from the navigation channel and the lower Noyo River, located on the north central California coast. The pilot study investigated several potential locations for placement of dredged sediments in one of two areas north of Noyo Bay. The investigation included field data collection and numerical modeling of near-field sediment transport and suspended sediment concentration during and after placement of the dredged sediments under combined wave and current conditions. The numerical model provided the technical information necessary for SPN and Noyo Harbor stakeholders to evaluate a location site that is economically feasible for the optimum sediment placement. Upon acceptance by the stakeholders and receipt of additional funds, a demonstration project will be conducted, and the Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP) for Noyo Harbor will be updated to include a beneficial use site for nearshore placement.
