SCOPE. The objective of this document is to cite and supplement
existing government and commercial standards for design and construction of harbor
and coastal facilities. It serves as planning, engineering and design guidance for
professional facility planners, designers, constructors, and maintainers, including Navy
personnel and Government contractors. Designers and planners will use this handbook
for individual project planning, for preparing engineering documentation, and for
preparing contract documents for construction and repair. This document extensively
references the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Coastal Engineering Manual
(CEM). The CEM is in the final stages of development and can be accessed at
NAVFACENGCOM EICO office.
PURPOSE. The purpose of UFC 4-150-06 is to provide adequate harbor
and dredging project criteria, design and maintenance guidance, and relevant lessons
learned with respect to shore infrastructure. This document also provides the complete
criteria and guidance package needed by appropriate end users. To the extent
practical, it addresses the range of harbor and dredging criteria needed at stateside and
overseas military installations. Note: This document does not include overseas data.
ORGANIZATION. The majority of the information for subjects of this
handbook is introduced as references to the applicable government and consensus
standards in which the original information resides. Where other documents are not
available or are inadequate, additional narrative information regarding Navy-specific
issues has been developed and inserted, as appropriate.
CANCELLATION. UFC 4-150-06 cancels and supersedes NAVFAC
Design Manual 26.1, Harbors, dated 1 December 1984, NAVFAC Design Manual 26.2,
Coastal Protection and NAVFAC Design Manual 26.3, Coastal Sedimentation and
Dredging, dated 1 September 1986.
