PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct a rock breakwater along a 1.4-mile section of the northern bank of the GIWW.  Approximately 12,556 cubic yards of 8-inch graded riprap will be placed within a 3.6-acre area of the GIWW.  The toe of the breakwater will be at least 172.5 feet from the centerline of the channel in depths of 1.5 feet.  The breakwater is intended to prevent shoreline erosion of the San Bernard Wildlife Refuge marsh complex adjacent to the GIWW.  The breakwater will accrete marsh behind it and prevent saltwater intrusion
