The applicant proposes to construct a rock breakwater along a 3-mile section of the northern bank of the GIWW. For safety and navigation concerns, the toe of the breakwater will be placed at least 172.5 feet from the centerline of the channel in water depths of 1.5 feet. Approximately 23,436 cubic yards of 8-inch graded riprap will be placed within a 5.24-acre area of the GIWW during construction of the breakwater. The purpose of the breakwater is to accrete marsh behind it and prevent saltwater intrusion into Sargent Marsh.
