Mission Bay Dredging Scheme Kicks Off
The Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging Project, aimed to restore beaches along Mission Bay, is now officially underway, the City of San Diego, CA, said in their latest announcement.
The dredging program will cover approximately 64 acres within Mission Bay, resulting in an estimated 122,000 to 220,850 cubic yards of dredged material.
The city said that 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.
When the project is finished in October 2018, the floor of Mission Bay will be more level, thus allowing for safer boat navigation.
