Abstract:

The existing comprehensive fixed-bed model of the Delaware estuary was used to determine the effects of filling several proposed spoil disposal areas and dredging several proposed sediment traps in the Marcus Hook-Schuylkill River reach of the Delaware on tides, currents, and shoaling. Tests were conducted to determine the effects of diking off several areas on hydraulic and shoaling conditions throughout the adjacent reaches of the estuary. The test results consist primarily of measurements of shoaling quantities, tide heights, current velocities, and time-exposure photographs of surface-current patterns.
