2010 Batiquitos Lagoon Maintenance Dredging
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The maintenance dredging of Batiquitos Lagoon is designed to remove sand from flood shoals and redistribute to nearshore area of adjacent beaches. Material to be placed is sand from nearshore area drawn into the lagoon by tidal action and is estimated to be 90-95% sand minimum. Serveral rusted, existing fences will be replaced around nesting sites, and cobble from the lagoon mouth will be dredged and redistributed along the lagoon shoreline to improve habitat for shorebirds.
