Oceanside Harbor Dredging Moves Along
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, together with the contractor, is continuing the Oceanside Harbor navigational dredging project, having removed approximately 38,580 cubic yards of material from the harbor’s entrance channels from October 6 through 12.
Since operations began on June 6, CJW Construction has dredged approximately 218,690 cubic yards of material out of the 260,000 cubic yards designated for removal.
The Oceanside Harbor navigational dredging project is an annual project conducted to maintain the federal channels within the harbor at their authorized federal depth and to provide safe navigation for the recreational, commercial and military vessels that use the channels.
Oceanside Harbor is one of four annual dredging projects conducted by the Los Angeles District.
Material dredged from the entrance channels is being placed along Oceanside’s beach. Placement of beach quality material along the shoreline is a beneficial byproduct of the maintenance dredging project.
CJW is currently discharging material just north of the Oceanside pier.
