Ocean Beach Beach Nourishment First Sand Hitting the Shore
The much-anticipated U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Beneficial Use project at Ocean Beach is finally here! This Ocean Beach Continuing Authorities Program Section 204 comprises building a sand berm on property owned by Golden Gate National Recreation Area in front of 3,000 feet of the bluff south of Sloat Boulevard using sand dredged from the San Francisco Main Ship Channel. The project goal is to protect the Great Highway and wastewater infrastructure maintained by the City and County of San Francisco, Public Utilities Commission. These photos were of the first loads of dredged sand coming from the hopper dredge off shore pumped to Ocean Beach.
