At the February meeting of the National Conference on Beach Preservation Technologies in St. Augustine, FL, Port of Palm Beach Engineer Ron Coddington presented a 15 minute paper on the Analysis of Shoaling at the Port of Palm Beach and the economic impacts to the Port. In attendance were various U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Staff, consulting firms, and city and county parties responsible for inlet dredging and our beaches. The presentation was very well received and generated several questions about how the Port manages its controlling depths. Coddington discussed various aspects and solutions to the channel's shoaling. These discussions and meetings will provide for a better understanding of the Port of Palm Beach and how shoaling must be addressed.
