SPL-2021-0512-NLH Channel Islands Harbor Breakwater

Los Angeles District
Published May 12, 2021

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District, along with its contractor, Connolly Pacific, are conducting ongoing repairs to two parallel entrance jetties and the protective offshore breakwater near the entrance of the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, California.

The Channel Islands Harbor Breakwater and Jetty Repair project consists of typical maintenance work to repair the detached breakwater and entrance channel jetties to their original condition and functionality. The structures were built in the early 1960’s to protect the harbor. The repair areas identified have the same existing footprint as the original construction and are not an enhancement or modification.

The project is needed to ensure navigational safety and to prevent further degradation of the structural integrity of the jetties and breakwater.

Repairs to the south jetty are expected to have no impacts to local sediment transport patterns, no impacts to the existing wave regime adjacent the south jetty, and therefore no impacts to the quality of surf at this location.
