Crown Beach Sand Replacement Underway

alameda-beach-erosionEast Bay Regional Park District kicked-off a $5.3 million project this week to restore Crown Memorial State Beach to its 1987 footprint, by piling up some 82,600 cubic yards of sand onto the shore.

The beach, along Shoreline Drive, is artificial, and has no natural source of replacement sand, such as a creek or river. The district estimates that one percent of the sand along the beach is washed away each year; major storms can cause significant losses.

Imported beach sand will be pumped onto the beach from an offshore barge. The work will be conducted on weekdays only.

“During this project, the public will be able to access the beach safely across sand fill or ramps over the pipeline, with certain areas restricted as the work progresses from one end of the beach to the other,” said Park District Chief of Design and Construction Diane Althoff.

Funding for the project came from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), grants from the State Department of Boating and Waterways (DBAW), Dubai Star oil spill mitigation funds, Measure AA funds, and the district’s General Fund balance.
