4.3.3
Dredging
Dredging is another method of transporting sand to the beach and is only feasible at specific
locations that are located in close proximity to a beach fill site. These locations include the
Goleta Slough, Carpinteria Marsh, Carpinteria Creek, and Ormond Slough. For example, the
mouth of the Goleta Slough was dredged in 1995 and 200,000 cy of sediment was deposited on
the beach. Currently, the SBCFCD is dredging approximately 25,000 cy from the slough.
4.3.4
Conveyor
Some potential sand source locations are located adjacent to the proposed beach fill sites. At
some of these sites, conveyors may be a suitable means to transport material to the beach, then
earth moving equipment can spread the sand onto the beach fill site. These sources which have
potential of having sand transported via conveyors include Port of Hueneme construction or
maintenance activities, Carpinteria Marsh, Carpinteria Slough, landslide material near the Oil
Piers beach fill site, and at the Santa Clara River. Also, the Caltrans stockpile sites near the Oil
Piers beach fill site maybe able to accommodate conveyors to transport material to the beach via
the pedestrian underpasses.
4.4
STOCKPILE SITES
Potential stockpile sites exist within the project area. The stockpile sites are identified to act as
temporary storage sites of suitable beach sand until an appropriate time and approval has been
obtained for placement at a beach fill site. These sites are outlined in Table 4.5 and include:
(1) the terminus of Ward Drive, 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
