Regi
onal Sediment Management in the City of Encinitas

As part of the City of Encinitas’s (City’s) continued commitment toward implementation of the goals of the Coastal
Regional Sediment Management Plan (CRSMP) for the San Diego region (M&N 2009), the City has

recently
completed two “opportunistic” beach nourishment projects at Moonlight Beach.
The CRSMP aims to offset
regional sediment deficits along the shoreline by restoring natural sediment pathways and better management of
sediment resources.


Opportunisti
c beach fill projects (OBFPs)


refers to projects
involving

sediments derived as a
surplus material from upland development or wetland restoration
activities
.


Restoration of Moonlight Beach entailed
placement

of
approximately
6,000 cy of
surplus

sand from an upland
development (Scripps Memorial Hospital Project) and from the routine
clearing

of
sand from
the City’s detention
basins.
Surplus

sand from these two projects
was

placed along an approximately 1,100
-
foot long and 50
-
foot wide
segment of
Moonlight Beach. The sand was delivered to the beach via truck during both projects. A scraper was
then used on the beach to spread the material along the placement site.

This presentation will detail how the City has implemented the goals of the CRSMP
at

the local

level
and will also
discuss
lessons learned from the construction of
these
two OBFPs.

Presentation t
opics covered will include: how to
identify

and finance
cost
-

project
s
, public
-
private partnerships,
and various permit compliance
chall
enges
encountered
during construction.
