Scope and Objective of Work

  • Monthly Field monitoring of shoreline and beach profiling2 km on either side of North & South of the training walls (breakwaters) to assess the rate of shoreline evolution over one year duration.
  • Field assessment of the siltation patterns and levels in the intake basin (in between the training walls) and in the mouth portion up to (-) 3m depth with respect to CD or 200m distance from the round head portion of the training wall/groyne to ascertain the siltation in the mouth portion over a 1 year period covering the monsoon activity (based on depth measurement).
  • Field assessment of sediment levels and sediment load in the intake basin, intake channel and desilting basin.

The survey was conducted from December 2014 to February 2016
