near Goleta Beach; (2) Santa Monica Creek Debris Basin Site near the Ash Avenue Site; (3) two
Caltrans stockpile sites inland of Highway 101 along the railroad near Oil Piers; (4) Ventura
County Fairgrounds property adjacent to the Surfer's Point beach fill site; (5) on the back of the
beach near Fifth Street at Oxnard Shores; and (6) on the lighthouse promenade near Hueneme
Beach. Additional sites may be identified over time as the program proceeds.
Potential sand sources have been identified as part of the program, including flood control debris
basins, river and slough sediments, landslide material, decommissioned dams, and material from
miscellaneous construction activities. Criteria for beach fill sand sources are specified to enable
BEACON to implement individual projects in accordance with environmental guidelines
established by the State and Federal government.  These criteria include chemical testing,
sediment grain size, color, particle shape, debris, and compactability/moldability. Each source of
potential beach sediment will be analyzed against each of these criteria to determine if the
sediment is beach compatible and which beach fill site should receive it.
Beach fill activities may occur on short notice and when material becomes available.
Transportation of the sediment will be by trucks, train, dredge, conveyors, or other suitable
means. Trucking of suitable beach sand from potential sand sources will probably be the most
efficient transportation method for most sand source sites.  However, other transportation
methods may be adequate for certain sites or specific operations.
Both physical and biological monitoring are proposed as part of this program. A detailed
biological assessment was conducted by the Chambers Group, Inc. for each of the six beach fill
sites and is included in Appendix B.  Each project site possesses different environmental
resources therefore, each beach fill site will have its own monitoring program tailored to address
them. Physical monitoring will be conducted at each of the beach fill sites and will include beach
profiling and turbidity monitoring.  The table below summarizes the proposed monitoring
activities for each site.
