Feasibility Study for Beach Sand Replenishment/Retention Devices

The City of Oceanside Public Works Department has initiated a feasibility study that seeks to develop a strategy to protect City beaches from the impacts of long-term shoreline erosion.  Our consultant (GHD) was hired to perform a preliminary engineering evaluation and feasibility study to consider options for beach sand replenishment and/or retention devices to stabilize and enhance the beach widths in the City.  GHD has begun the review and analysis of data and relevant global project examples and has developed six preliminary concepts to carry forward in the feasibility study. The goal of the study is to identify a beach replenishment/retention strategy that is environmentally sensitive, financially feasible and has a reasonable chance of being approved through the regulatory permitting process.
