Breakwater needs to be rebuilt, Army Corps says PDF Print E-mail

Condition so bad ‘it seems as if next big storm could wash structure away,’ agency reports

    Almost the entire eastern half of Port Washington’s north breakwater is structurally unsound and dangerous and should be rebuilt as soon as possible, according to a harbor inspection report by the Army Corps of Engineers.

    “In some sections, it seems as if the next big storm may wash the structure away,” the report reads. “Therefore, it is recommended that a major rehabilitation be performed along the entire reach as soon as funds become available.”


    According to the report, which was distributed to aldermen Tuesday, a large portion of the breakwater has failed, another segment in very poor condition and a smaller area is in poor condition.


    Only a small segment of the breakwater near shore is listed in good condition, needing only minor maintenance work, according to the report.


    For city officials who have been working hard to convince the Army Corps, which owns the breakwater, that the crumbling structure is in desperate need of repair, the report is validation and represents hope that something will finally get done.
