Carlsbad Beach Replenishment Resumes (USA)
The $28 million SANDAG beach replenishment project along the San Diego coastline will continue today, reports fox5sandiego.com.
The project began in early September and will replenish beaches from Oceanside to Imperial Beach.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on the afternoon of November 7, an incident involving efforts to clear a clogged onshore pipe occurred at the Fletcher Cove worksite in Solana Beach.
There were no injuries as a result of the accident.
“The initial investigation into the accident showed that while clogged pipes are a rare occurrence, the method used that led to the accident will not be used again on this project if a pipe becomes clogged,” SANDAG spokesman David Hicks said.
