This investigation comprises a study of survey scope to detmine the advisability of improving the lower portions of Greens Bayou for navigation. Detailed field surveys and office studies were made to determine the most practicable plan of improvement. The detailed field investigations consisted of hydrographic surveys to obtain channel cross sections; surveys to obtain details of wharves and other marine terminal facilities, of bridges, and of utilities and other channel crossings; borings to obtain subsurface conditions for proposed channel improvements; and an economic survey to determine the character and extent of benefits that would be derived from the improvements.
