Dredging Part of Colorado Lagoon Restoration Project

The City of Long Beach (CA) announced few days ago that ribbon cutting celebration planned for the Colorado Lagoon Restoration Project will take place at 9:30 am, on Saturday, May 20.

We’ve made major strides improving the Colorado Lagoon over the past few years and these latest enhancements will help return the Lagoon back to its glory days,” said Mayor Robert Garcia.

The latest restoration improvements include hydraulic sediment dredging of the lagoon to ensure compliance with the Federal Clean Water Act and to meet the approved Colorado Lagoon sediment and water quality targets, as well as the creation of new subtidal and eelgrass habitats. Los Angeles Engineering, a Covina company, was the city’s contractor for the restoration work.

The most recent set of improvements, which began in September 2016 and was completed in May 2017, are a part of a multi-phased Colorado Lagoon restoration plan which includes previous improvements finished in 2010 and 2012.

The final component of the Colorado Lagoon’s approved master restoration plan involves creating an open channel between the Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium.
