Grays Harbor model, a fixed-bed model with provisions for future conversion to a movable-bed model, was constructed to scales of 1500 horizontally and 1100 vertically and reproduced all of Grays Harbor, the Chehalis River to the head of tidal influence South Montesano, and a portion of the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the harbor entrance. The primary purposes of the overall model study will be to determine the effects of rehabilitation of both the north and south jetties, investigate the stability of Point Chehalis, determine the effects of enlarging and realigning the navigation channel, and locate suitable dredge spoil disposal areas.
