Oceanside Beach Renourishment Moves Forward

The annual dredging of the entrance channel at Oceanside Harbor began earlier this week when the dredger HR Morris began pumping the first of up to 300,000 cubic yards that will maintain safe navigation for vessels and provide much-needed renourishment for the city’s shoreline, USACE said.

The Corps awarded the contract to Manson Construction Company of Seattle, Washington, on March 13 and issued the notice proceed on March 27.

Since that date, Manson transferred the necessary equipment to the site, assembled the pipeline that will transport the slurry from the harbor to the beach and moved Morris into place to begin operations.

“With the pipeline and heavy construction equipment in operation along the beach, the Corps and the city remind the public to exercise extreme caution when near the dredge, pipeline and other construction equipment. Manson will station safety monitors on the beach when beach equipment is in use,” USACE said in its release.

Manson Construction has successfully dredged Oceanside Harbor in the past, and Corps and the project’s local sponsor, the City of Oceanside, anticipate no difficulties meeting the Memorial Day completion date.
