The cities of Marina, Monterey, Sand City and Seaside are proposing the Monterey Bay Opportunistic Beach Nourishment Program.
The proposed program is designed to facilitate sand placement in order to mitigate ongoing coastal erosion and the effects of future sea level rise, resulting in multi-objective long-term benefits with minimized short-term adverse effects. Under the proposed program, the cities would undertake multiple distinct sand placement activities as opportunistic sources become available and are determined compatible.
The Marina City Council designated the City of Monterey as lead agency for the project and the City of Monterey has prepared the associated environmental documents:
