1. Renourishing the Santa Barbara Littoral Cell; and
2. Improving protection to coastal structures and enhancing recreational opportunities.
The primary objective of the program is to obtain a 5-year permit from all necessary
regulatory agencies to allow opportunistic beach enhancement projects to occur within
the 5 years, eliminating the need for separate permits for each project. The permitting
agencies include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), California Coastal
Commission (CCC), California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), State
Lands Commission (SLC), and the County of Santa Barbara. In addition permits may
be required from the individual cities. The permits would allow beach fills to occur
based on a pre-determined set of criteria that each project would have to meet. The
criteria would include chemical characteristics of the sand, grain size, color, particle
shape, debris content, compactability/moldability, placement sites, placement timing,
and placement rates.
Table 1-1 summarizes the sand quantities and percent fines proposed for placement on
each receiver beach.  Table 1-2 summarizes anticipated sand sources, transport
method(s), and potential sand volume for each beach receiver site. In most cases sand
will be transported from the source to the receiver beach by truck.  The beach fill
material will be placed below the mean high tide line, as a layer over the beach surface
as a berm, as a sand dike along the back of the beach, or as dune placement and
