The US Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (USACE) intends to enter into a cooperative agreement to assist with nearshore data collection at the Mouth of the Columbia River (MCR). An Argus Beach Monitoring System (ABMS) will be placed at the North Head to monitor the wave environment and changes to the nearshore berms and jetties. The data and monitoring supports the long-term implementation of the MCR Regional Sediment Management Plan, as well as providing real-time conditions of the Federal Navigation Channel, North Jetty, Jetty A, Shallow Water Site, and North Jetty Site. Data analysis allows the Corps to track the sediment movement in the nearshore environment. The preferred partner in the agreement will be qualified to provide technical data collection and analysis and must have experience in volatile areas such as the Mouth of the Columbia River. This cooperative agreement is awarded pursuant to 33 USC 2326b â€“ Sediment Management Data collection will be performed at the Mouth of the Columbia River.
