Abstract : Local interests request the existing 30-foot project for Shipyard River, S.C., be modified to provide for a 35-foot project and that the entrance reach be widened from 200 to 300 feet. The District Engineer finds that the existing authorized project depth is adequate for present and prospective traffic and that present navigation problems caused by insufficient depths are the result of inadequate maintenance of the existing project. He further finds that in the interests of safe and efficient navigation, widening of the access reach of the river from 200 to 300 feet is needed and justified. He recommends that no modification be made to the existing project depth, but in the interests of safe and efficient navigation the project width be increased to 300 feet in the access reach of the river, at an estimated federal first cost fo $61,300 with an increase of $6,000 annually for operation and maintenance, provided that local interests furnish all necessary rights-of-way, and assuraces that they will hold and save the United States free from damages which may results from improvement or maintenance of the project.
