Tedious Creek Small Craft Harbor: CGWAVE Model Comparisons Between Existing and Authorized Breakwater Configurations

By Michael J. Briggs, Barbara P. Donnell, Zeki Demirbilek and Robert D. Carver

Abstract

model comparisons between existing and authorized breakwater configurations at Tedious Creek, MD. The numerical model CGWAVE was used to predict wave heights and directions inside the harbor to determine if there are any significant differences between the two configurations. BACKGROUND: Tedious Creek is a small estuary on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay in Dorchester County, MD (Figure 1). It provides anchorage to more than 100 commercial and recreational vessels. The primary anchorages are the county boat dock (CD) and the public piers (PP), both on the south shore. Because of its orientation, storm waves may cause substantial damage
