Solana Beach Replenishment Halted (USA)
After the explosion of an onshore pipe at the Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach on Wednesday evening, the replenishment project was halted.
SANDAG spokeswoman Colleen Windsor stated: “Fortunately no one was hurt and a full investigation has been launched to find out the cause of the accident.”
SANDAG, which is coordinating the $28.5 million Regional Beach Sand Project with support from community leaders in the coastal areas, kicked off the project on September 8.
The replenishment project at the Fletcher Cove area commenced November 4 and it was expected to finish in the next couple of days, according to fox5sandiego.com.
