Document Description
The project is the dredging of the channel entrance to Varner Harbor, Salton Sea State Recreation Area, from the Salton Sea. Up to 8,000 cubic yards of material are expected to be removed to clear the channel for boat traffic. In addition, the channel's northern jetty would be rebuilt using rip rap materials, and the existing south jetty would be reinforced with additional rip rap. The dredged material would be deposited on the beach immediately north of the northern jetty to restore the eroded beach. An additional 4,000 cubic yards of sediment are proposed for dredging from the channel within the next five years.
