The purposes of this U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE Regional Sediment Management Technical Note RSM-TN are to document the development of alternative approaches to managing sediment at the intersection of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway GIWW and the Corpus Christi Ship Channel CCSC, Texas, and to determine the relative benefits and risks of each alternative. These alternatives potentially enhance navigation at this specific location but also enhance general understanding of navigable channel interactions in similar circumstances. The purpose of this study was to provide potential alternatives to managing the sediment at these locations. Sediment budget is discussed for readers to understand the magnitude of the channel shoaling situation in Corpus Christi Bay.
