  • In-house labor to complete geospatial land data migration into the Corps map system.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The City of Monterey is the Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS).
  • The west breakwater was constructed in 1934.
  • Following years of gradual settlement, the breakwater crest was restored to its original design elevation in FY 93. This effort provided improved benefits to the original project by reducing harbor facility maintenance, vessel damage, and navigation delays.
  • The Corps dredged the basin near Wharf No. 1 periodically between 1947 and 1957.
  • Since 1957, the City has removed insignificant quantities of material without Federal assistance.

CONGRESSIONAL INTEREST

  • 20th District, Rep. Jimmy Panetta

POINT OF CONTACT

  • Deputy for Project Management, Edwin S. Townsley, (415) 503-6593.
