Moss Landing Harbor, Section 111



MOSS LANDING HARBOR
CONTINUING AUTHORITY, SECTION 111

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION: The project is located approximately 95 miles south of San Francisco in the City of Moss Landing, in Monterey County, California. The harbor is protected by a 954-foot north jetty and a 516-foot south jetty, built in 1946. This study would address an erosion problem that may be caused by the manner in which the jetties were constructed. Lack of funding has precluded initiation of the study phase.

FY 06 ACCOMPLISHMENTS: No work is anticipated for FY06 since the study was not funded. Those studies that are named in appropriations reports are given higher priority for funding.

FY 07 ACCOMPLISHMENTS: If funds were provided, an Initial Assessment could be completed and a Feasibility Study and Detailed Project Report could be initiated.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION: Study initiation is suspended indefinitely due to lack of funding. The Moss Landing Harbor District General Manager requested Corps assistance with an erosion problem that appears to be caused by the jetties. The way the jetties were built appears to cause an “eddy” effect to the south of the entrance channel, creating erosion on the immediately adjacent property and an extremely high volume of sediment deposition on the next adjacent property.
