Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging Project About to Begin

The Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging Project, aimed to restore beaches along Mission Bay, is set to begin in the following days, the City of San Diego said in their latest announcement. 

This cleanup scheme will dredge approximately 64 acres within Mission Bay, resulting in an estimated 122,000 to 220,850 cubic yards of dredged material.

All of the dredged 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, the city said.

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

Project overview

Over the years, recreational boating, storms and water currents have caused the floor of Mission Bay to become uneven.

In order to maintain navigational safety for boats in the bay, the Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging 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 project is finished in October 2018, the floor of Mission Bay will be more level, thus allowing for safer boat navigation.
