Middle Harbor Habitat Development

Port of Oakland, CA

Middle Harbor Habitat, Oakland, CA

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed numerical modeling of tide-induced currents and sediment transport and developed a model to enhance tidal circulation for the Port of Oakland’s Middle Harbor Habitat Project. The project consisted of dredged material placement, rock and sheet pile containment structures, tidal channels, and avian roosting islands designed to provide protection from wave action and enhance circulation within the habitat area which consisted of approximately 45 acres of eelgrass.
