The annual Oceanside Harbor maintenance dredging project is nearing completion, as Manson Construction Company reports about 311,000 cubic yards of sand has been dredged from the harbor’s entrance channel, according to a May 27 survey.
The contractor has met the base contract requirement to remove 280,000 cubic yards of material from the channel. Because of the availability of funding to continue dredging and the presence of additional material in the channel, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District has coordinated with the City of Oceanside, the project’s sponsor, and the appropriate permitting agencies to continue dredging.
Corps officials are optimistic Manson can reach the revised authorization to dredge up to 420,000 cubic yards of material on or before the June 12 deadline.
