Abstract


This paper presents the design, model test, and construction to rehabilitate a deteriorated rubblemound breakwater at Port of Haina, south shore of Dominican Republic (Figure 1). The original structure, 350 meter east breakwater and 250 meter west breakwater of rock and concrete block construction, was badly damaged during the storms in 1979 as shown in Figures 2 and 3. After numerous temporary repairs and studies, a rehabilitation design plan was approved. Construction started in June 1993 and is expected to complete by the end of 1995.
