Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


Possible sedimentation problems at the proposed site of the Summit North Marina were investigated and reported. This brief paper summarizes the detailed results given in the report. The tasks of the sedimentation study of the Summit North Marina initiated in April, 1985 were specified as follows: (1) collection and synthesis of available data on the hydraulic and hydrographic characteristics; (2) identification of the sources of the deposited sediment; (3) determination of the sediment transport patterns; (4) estimation of the sedimentation rate in the dredged marina area; and (5) recommendation and evaluation of sedimentation mitigation measures. The findings of these tasks are summarized.
