COMMISSION APPROVES VENTURA HARBOR DREDGING PROGRAM
The California Coastal Commission unanimously approved a 10-year dredging maintenance program for Ventura Harbor, California, during a three-day September meeting at New-port Beach City Hall.
The dredging program would be implemented through April 18, 2026, and allow up to 100,000 cubic yards of material to be dredged annually from the inner harbor and another 600,000 cubic yards annually from the outer harbor.
Inner harbor dredging would take place within the navigational channels, berthing areas and sand traps. Dredged materials would be placed near the mouth of the Santa Clara River, at three interior depressions within the harbor, and/or the nearshore area of McGrath State Beach.
Material from the entrance channel and off-shore sand traps will be deposited along 10,000 feet of beach south of the harbor’s lower jetty and McGrath State Beach, at the surf zone north of the harbor entrance, and/or the nearshore area off San Buenaventura State Beach and just south of Ventura Pier.Edit Module
