Document Description
This project involves the installation of wind fencing on Strand Way and north of Pier Avenue in Pismo State Beach. Fencing would be installed during the windy season (approximately February through June) for five years. As needed, sand will be removed from the fencing using heavy equipment (loader and scraper) and be deposited on the beach and above the mean high tide line. The wind fencing consists of wooden peeler poles, metal fencing, and plastic fencing. The fence is installed in multiple lines approximately 120 feet long and 60 feet apart and perpendicular to the prevailing wind. This wind fencing has been installed annually since 2005 or earlier and has proven to be effective at controlling the movement of sand. This project is necessary to keep wind blown sand from inundating homes on Strand Way and infrastructure at the Pier restroom and along Pier Avenue. The area where the wind fencing is installed is on the sandy beach and is open to driving year round. The area is void of native vegetation.
