Launch Ramp Dredge

Project Location:Pillar Point Harbor
Status:DREDGE COMPLETED/Continue storing sand
Initial Funding:January 18, 2017
Estimated Completion:December 2021
Description:A severe storm event in 2017 caused part of the boat launch ramps to be covered in sand very rapidly.   The cost of the removal of debris/sediment and storage of the sand to be used to replenish Surfers Beach/West Trail was deemed to be qualified for FEMA/CalOES Funding. 
Justification:The Boat Launch Ramp contains six lanes.  The sand accumulation caused two of the six lanes to become nonoperational.  This has led to long waiting periods to launch boats.
Strategic Goat/Operating Impact:1) Comprehensive Long-Range Planning Guides District Actions and Decision Making.
 2) Infrastructure Improvements are Guided by Comprehensive Long Term Planning. 
May contain: water, waterfront, pier, dock, and port
