REPORT OF MR. W. H. HEARDING, ASSISTANT ENGINEER.

UNITED STATES ENGINEER OFFICE,

Milwaukee, June 30, 1884. Sir: The following re:vort is respectfully submitted in relation to Kenosha Harbor, Wisconsin. During last season a double row of sheet-piles was driven along the south face of a section of the south pier, 170 running feet in length near its western extremity, covering the intersection of the shore-line to the south ward of the channel, which has effectually checked the passage of sand through the pier. A severe storm which occurred on the 7th of July, 1883, had the effect of causing a settlement of the stone ballast in the onter pockets of the crib at the eastern extremity of the north pier to an average depth of 10.6 feet below the plank decking of the crib. To supply the deticiency thus caused, 20 cords of stone were purchased, of which 14 cords were put into the crib and 6 cords were placed around the end of the pier as riprap, the work being done by hired labor.

The north wall of the north pier was raised 1 foot in height for a distance of 162 running feet, covering the intersection of the shore-line with the pier. Repairs were made to the south face of this pier where the timbers were broken by collision of the schooner Junter Savidye during a storm on the night of September 27, 1483. A plat of the soundings taken at this harbor on the 25th of April last shows that at the present stage of water vessels drawing not more than 124 feet of water can enter the harbor. The present stage is about 1.5 feet above datum. The superstructure of the outer section of the south pier, which is 355 feet in length and 20 feet in width, is in a very dilapidated condition and should be renewed as soon as practicable. The cost of cutting down and rebuilding this section to a height of 5 feet above datum is estimated at $4,331.65. The inner section of this pier, which is 415 feet in length, will require renewing within the next three years.

The arrivals and departures at this harbor during the past fiscal year, as furnished by A. W. Hall, esq., collector, were as follows:
