Mission Bay Dredging Plans on the Table

The City of San Diego has just released the latest details about their plans for the Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging Project.

In order to maintain navigational safety for boats in the bay, the project will dredge the bottom of the bay to restore it to its original survey elevation and then utilize the dredged material to fill other areas within the bay.

When the work is finished, the floor of Mission Bay will be more level, thus allowing for safer boat navigation.

This scheme will include dredging of approximately 64 acres within Mission Bay, resulting in an estimated 122,000 to 220,850 cubic yards of dredged material. This material will be reused in other areas of the bay, including portions of some beaches, so none of the material will be exported from the bay.

In addition to the dredge work, the scope of this project also includes replanting eelgrass that is impacted by the work.

Project Schedule and Budget

  • Begin construction: Early 2018;
  • Construction completion: October 2018.
