    1. Harbor Safety Committee Possible Effects of Draft EC 1130-2-xxxx (under review)‏ “ASSESSMENT AND REPORTING OF ACOUSTIC CLEARANCE SURVEYS IN DEEP-DRAFT NAVIGATION PROJECTS” Presentation Highlights: 1 – Establish Channel Depth 2 – Typical Dredging Section (Current & Proposed) 3 – Criteria for O&M Channel Acceptance 4 – Criteria for Multi-beam Cell Depth 5 – Criteria for Rounding Depths Furnished to the Public 6 – The EC Is Evolving – Comments Are Still Being Accepted

    2. Harbor Safety Committee { Justification for advance maintenance should describe historical shoaling rates, frequency of dredging, and cost analysis. * Usually 0 ft 1 to 2 ft * How do you establish underkeel clearance? Establish Channel Depth 2 ft DREDGING TOLERANCE

    3. Harbor Safety Committee Current Typical Dredging Section (O&M Dredging) Dredging Limitations: “Contour” Payment for In-Channel OD No Side-slope Dredging BUT Payment for material that sloughs off of side slope No Payment for Side-slope OD Dredging Tolerance: 1’ Allowable (Paid) OD 1’ Allowable (Non-Paid) OD

    4. Harbor Safety Committee EC 1130-2-xxxx Typical Dredging Section (soft bottom maintenance dredging) New: Survey Uncertainty Tolerance Unclear Aspects (especially in the SF Bay area): Side-slope Dredging Side-slope Over Depth Non-pay Over Depth Total Volume of Dredged Material (Pay & Non-Pay)

    5. Harbor Safety Committee Material falling within the survey uncertainty tolerance window need not be removed. Estimated Survey Tolerance * Allowable Over Depth *Since the statistical computations are complex, practical engineering judgment necessitates that an estimated "average survey tolerance" be assigned to specific surveys. Criteria for O&M Channel Acceptance Required Channel Depth The survey tolerance is defined as the estimated repeatability or reproducibility of the statistical average of multiple acoustic measurements made over a finite area or cell, and at a specific project site using the same or different measurement systems.

    6. Harbor Safety Committee Criteria for Multi-beam Cell Depth Depths in a Cell Average Minimum EC 1130-2-xxxx specifies using Average Cell Depth (minimum depth in a cell shall never be used) San Francisco District Plans to Acquire Multi-beam Survey System in FY09

    7. Harbor Safety Committee Better Equipment & Procedures Yields Smaller Survey Tolerance Estimated Survey Tolerance * * Nearest 0.5 ft is the highest “accuracy” that can be published. Allowable Over Depth ~ Published Soundings Required Channel Depth Criteria for Rounding Depths Furnished to the Public Survey Tolerance >0.5 ft => Round to Nearest 1.0 ft Survey Tolerance ±0.2 ft to ±0.5 ft => Round to Nearest 0.5 ft

    8. Harbor Safety Committee Possible Effects of Draft EC 1130-2-xxxx (Summary)‏ 1 – Criteria for Channel Acceptance A – Estimated Survey Tolerance (EST >= 0.2 ft)‏ B – High Spots (<= EST) Are Acceptable 2 – Criteria for Multi-beam Cell Depth (use average depth)‏ 3 – Criteria for Rounding Published Depths(± 0.5 ft or ± 1.0 ft)‏ Taking Uncertainties into Account Recognizing the steep learning curves for all things new: 4 – First priority = reduce EST of Government surveys 5 – Next priority = improve survey posting timeline The Engineering Circular is evolving – Comments Are Still Being Accepted

Inherent Survey Uncertainties No matter how repeatable our surveys are, we are still just estimating the channel depth. ± 0.9 ft = RMS (95%)‏ Quantitative estimate of acoustic depth measurement accuracy
