Surfers Beach Pilot Restoration Project

Document Description
The proposed project is located at Pillar Point Harbor and Surfers Beach in City of Half Moon Bay just south of the Harbor and west of the unincorporated community of El Granada. The proposed Project would involve dredging of up to 100,000 cubic yards (CY) of clean sand accumulated along the inside of Pillar Point Harbor’s East Breakwater and a one- time placement of that sand to form an elevated berm along an approximately 1,000-foot-long section of shoreline at Surfers Beach in Half Moon Bay. Permitting level (30%) engineering design plans are available, which include the precise details of the dredging and sand placement activities. The purpose of the project is to address erosion at Surfers Beach by restoring sandy beach area using clean sand dredged from navigable areas of Pillar Point Harbor, including the boat launch ramp.
