Oceanside navigational dredging continues

Published July 8, 2016

OCEANSIDE, Calif. – Progress on the navigational dredging project within Oceanside Harbor continued this week with the contractor, CJW Construction, restarting dredging on July 6th and removing about 5,000 cubic yards of material from the harbor’s entrance channels as of July 7th.

Since operations began on June 6, CJW has intermittently suspended operations because of adverse ocean conditions. To date, CJW has dredged about 30,000 cubic yards of the 260,000 cubic yards designated for removal.

Material dredged from the entrance channels is being placed along Oceanside’s beach, beginning immediately south of the San Luis Rey River mouth to a point about 150 yards south of the pier. Placement of material is currently occurring in front of the North Coast Village and will move south towards Surfrider Way in the next week.
