Part of: Coastal Engineering Considerations in Coastal Zone Management


The City of St. Paul requested the Alaska District of the Corps of Engineers to become involved in their harbor project through Section 204e of Public Law 99-662. This arrangement allowed St. Paul to construct the project with its own funds after approval of the plans and specifications by the Secretary of the Army and then be reimbursed the federal share of the construction cost. The design for the St. Paul harbor was extensively reviewed, and several model studies were required during the design process. The harbor was constructed under Corps oversight and is presently performing excellently. This is an example of federal and local cooperation that resulted in an outstanding harbor project.
