Abstract: The design approach that was used to determine the length and elevation of a submerged groyne as well as a system for providing adjustment to the elevation of the submerged groyne is presented. A pier overhead the submerged groyne was employed to provide access for installation and adjustment of the underwater components as well as to provide a promenade amenity. Improvement of beach conditions since construction of the facility have been monitored.
