The annual Oceanside Harbor dredging project is underway, with Manson Construction Company having moved its equipment to the site and begun the process of assembling the pipeline that will transport material from the harbor’s entrance to points south along Oceanside’s beach.

Dredging operations are scheduled to begin today, USACE said in its latest announcement.

The dredging contract calls for the removal of 280,000 cubic yards of material from the harbor’s entrance channel and will be modified for any additional quantities available.

Manson Construction has successfully dredged Oceanside Harbor in the past, and Corps officials anticipate no difficulties meeting the Memorial Day completion date, the official announcement stated.

“The Corps and the project’s local sponsor, the City of Oceanside, remind the public to exercise caution when near the dredge, pipeline and other construction equipment,” USACE’s release said.

Manson towed 11 sections of high-density polyethylene, or HDPE, pipe in preparation for the beach fill activities. The contractor will connect the 500-foot sections to place sand along the beach as the project works its way south.
