San Diego Regional Beach Sand Project
The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is proposing the San Diego Regional Beach Sand Project to replenish the County's beaches. SANDAG represents the Cities within San Diego...

Application of the Texas A&M University (TAMU) Dredging Cost Model to Long Distance Transport
To develop intelligent decisions about moving sediment long distances to the coast from dams, the cost becomes a major factor. The cost will be a function of many factors including cleaning...

Environmentally Friendly Transport of Reservoir Sediment for Beach Nourishment with EDDY Pump
Sand impounded behind hydroelectric, flood-control and debris dams not only diminishes the intended function of the reservoir, but also starves downstream coastline by denying natural...

Potential Effects of San Mining and Debris Basins on Coastal Sediment Supply in Los Angeles County
The potential sediment supply to the coast in Los Angeles has been heavily impacted by human activity. In the context of rational management of beaches as a resource, it is fundamental...
