Oceanside Harbor Dredging Near Completion

The annual Oceanside Harbor maintenance dredging project is nearing completion, reported yesterday the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District.

According to USACE, Manson Construction Company has dredged about 311,000 cubic yards of sand from the harbor’s entrance channel.

The Corps reported that contractor has met the base contract requirement to remove 280,000 cubic yards of material from the channel.

Because of the availability of funding to continue dredging and the presence of additional material in the channel, the Corps Los Angeles District has coordinated with the City of Oceanside, the project’s sponsor, and the appropriate permitting agencies to continue dredging.

USACE officials expect that Manson will be able to reach the revised authorization to dredge up to 420,000 cubic yards of material on or before the June 12 deadline.
