land, at an estimated cost of $1,700,
000, subject to certain conditions of
local cooperation including a cash
contribution of $700,000. Interested
parties now state that a channel of
the proposed dimensions will be in
adequate. They offer to contrib
ute sufficient funds to construct
a 25 foot channel from the Pass to
Point Isabel, or to a point near
Brownsville, and to construct ade
quate turning basins and harbor
faculties, if the United 8tate3 wiU
provide a channel 25 to 28 feet deep
through Brazos Sa.^iago Pass.
3. The Board believes that a 25
loot channel is necessary to attract
commodity movements of the class
expected by local inteersts. the es
timated tonnage of which is 775,000
tons, on which savings of several
million dollars are expected. A de
pendable channel of this depth can
be provided cr.ly by extensive works,
including jetties extending out to
the 25 foot contour of depth. The
aoption of such a project is consi
dered advisable under certain con
dit.ons of local cooperation.
4. The Board recommends modifi
cation of the existing project for
Brazos Island Harbor. Texas, suffi
cient to provide for a channel 25
feet deep and 300 feet wide through
Brazos Santiago Pass, with jetty
