The dredge HR Morris maintains position at the Oceanside Harbor entrance channel as the annual navigation project begins. The dredge pumps sediment from the channel in order to maintain the authorized federal channel depth, with the added benefit of using the material to renourish Oceanside beaches.

Manson Construction Company buried the nearly 2,500 feet of the 30-inch diameter discharge pipeline from the entrance channel at the north end of Oceanside's beach to the mouth of the San Luis Rey River. Burying the pipe improves safety for visitors, provides a more natural beach setting and reduces the time and cost to complete the project.

Manson Construction Company pumps material from the Oceanside Harbor entrance channel onto the beach just south of the San Luis Rey River. As the beach widens and provides the route for additional pumping, construction workers will add more sections to the pipe to eventually reach the Oceanside Pier.

This is the initial segment of pipeline that connects the dredge HR Morris to additional lengths along the beach. Dredge operators adjust the intake to create a slurry that is about 15-20 percent material and 85-80 percent water for maximum efficiency.
