The first ever SCOUP project at Fletcher Cove Beach

The City of Solana Beach, CA, will implement the first ever Sand Compatibility Opportunistic Use Program (SCOUP) project by placing up to 25,000 cubic yards of high-quality sand on Fletcher Cove Beach beginning Monday, April 19, and ending May 28.

“This important beach sand replenishment program, which has been in the City’s work Plan for several years, is intended to preserve and maintain our beaches and to protect our coastal bluffs and public and private property from Coastal Storm Damage erosion and possible failure,” the City said.

Under this first ever SCOUP Project, sand will be transported from the Solana 101 construction site at the corner of Sierra Ave and Dahlia Drive to Fletcher Cove Beach.

To protect public during this operation, the Fletcher Cove parking lot, Fletcher Cove Beach and the overlook area next to the Lifeguard Station will be closed during sand deposit operations, according to an official announcement.

Sand deposit operations will occur daily from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM during low tide windows.
