Abstract


A Shore Protection Master Plan (SPMP) for the Nile Delta Shoreline, extending from 30 kms west of the city of Alexandria (Arab Republic of Egypt) to 30 kms east of Port Said, is developed and reported. The SPMP was developed in three stages: (1) collection and analysis of relevant data to identify existing and future coastal problems and limits of needed shore protection, (2) development of shore protection alternatives with costs and economic evaluations, and (3) detailed design and technical specifications for the selected shore protection schemes along the SPMP zone. This paper summarizes Tetra Tech, Inc./Honeywell work and achievements on this project while under contract with the Egyptian Shore Protection Authority (SPA). The SPMP considered the Egyptian Government and the SPA national needs to the year 2000.
