Beach/breakwater design and coastal processes analysis at site of former Scott Paper Mill, Port ...

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed coastal engineering services for the Port of Anacortes as part of a complex cleanup project which consisted of dredging and capping contaminated sediment, constructing two breakwaters, creating a sheltered eelgrass habitat, installing new aids to navigation, and making upgrades to a seasonal small craft facility used for fishing, kayaking, and sailing. Due to the physical processes and strict regulatory requirements, CHE applied an innovative engineering approach that facilitated the successful design, construction, and implementation of all project features. The Port of Anacortes was awarded “Port of the Year” in 2009 by the Washington Public Ports Association (WPPA).
