Encinitas and Solana Report Released

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has prepared a joint Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Encinitas and Solana Beach Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Project.

According to the Corps, the EIS/EIR report will evaluate potential options for reducing storm damage related coastal erosion over a 50-year period anticipated to occur from 2018 through 2068.

The Authorized Project for coastal storm damage reduction in Encinitas includes construction of a 50-foot-wide beach fill along a 7,800-foot-long stretch of shoreline using 340,000 cubic yards of compatible sediment, with renourishment (in the amount of 220,000 cubic yards) every 5 years on average over a 50-year period of Federal participation, for a total of nine additional nourishments.

The Authorized Project for coastal storm damage reduction in Solana Beach includes construction of a 150-foot-wide beach fill along a 7,200-foot-long stretch of shoreline using 700,000 cubic yards of compatible sediment, with renourishment in the amount of 290,000 cubic yards every 10 years on average over a 50-year period of Federal participation, for a total of four additional nourishments.

Material for the beach fill will be dredged from borrow sites located off the coast of San Diego County. Physical monitoring of the performance of the project will be required annually throughout the 50-year period of Federal participation.

This plan would provide coastal storm damage reduction throughout the project reach and would maintain the existing recreational beach. A comprehensive mitigation monitoring and reporting plan has been incorporated into the proposed project.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
