Sand Dredging Newport Beach

Posted: 03/10/2017 by goodie in news

The sand dredging of the Santa Ana River has been underway since September 2016 and is scheduled to run another month and half or so. In the last several days the project coordinators installed a sand pipe that reaches out onto the 56st jetty and into the lineup. Only time will tell if 56st surf will benefit from this sand movement. Fun Fact- since 1991, it has cost 533 million dollars to keep the lower Santa Ana River free of sand!
