CHC Approves ABPmer Report

Cowes Harbour Commissioners at their Board meeting on Wednesday, 29th July reviewed and approved the sedimentation report from hydrodynamic consultants ABPmer.

The report was commissioned by CHC as part of the June 2015 Breakwater Project Review to investigate and report on the potential issues and concerns surrounding the apparent increased sedimentation in Cowes Harbour.

ABPmer have been involved from the start of this project as the hydrodynamic, modelling and marine environmental lead consultants for all of the marine elements of the Cowes Breakwater Project, as well as the Homes and Communities Agency led East Cowes regeneration project.

The Commissioners acknowledged that the ABPmer sedimentation review for the harbour was very detailed and comprehensive and its summary finding that there is insufficient hard evidence to indicate that the Cowes Breakwater is the primary reason for any apparent local increase or change in patterns of siltation.
