Abstract:

Under the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects Program, an assessment of shore-connected breakwaters and channel improvements at Cattaraugus Creek Harbor, New York, was performed. Data collection for the monitoring effort occurred from mid-1983 through 1985. An evaluation of waves, structure stability, sediment transport, channel stability, and ice-jam problems due to the construction of the project is discussed in detail. Data on the performance of the project and observations made in the prototype, as well as conclusions and recommendations based on the monitoring effort, are reported herein.
