Oceanside’s Public Works Department has issued a request for proposals to build sand retention devices and a sand-bypass system to protect the city’s eroding beaches.
In years past, the city has dredged the harbor to transfer sand to the beaches. But in recent years, the dredging process hasn’t produced enough sand. Beaches south of the city’s pier remain bare and rocky, and the city has increased its efforts to find a solution.
Companies have until Dec. 7 to submit their proposals. The job includes processing all regulatory permits needed for construction, and the completion of documents required by the California Environmental Quality Agency and the National Environmental Policy Act.
“This project will include any and all needed public outreach and community consensus building efforts and active lobbying in support of the project at the regional, state and federal levels,” states an update the Public Works Department presented to the Oceanside City Council on Friday.
