Council approves sand replenishment program

Dredging at San Dieguito River mouth

City Council action on Aug. 3 is moving Del Mar closer to securing permission to streamline the placement of high-quality sand on City beaches.

On a unanimous vote, the City Council approved an environmental document for the Sand Compatibility Opportunistic Use Program, or SCOUP. The document, a mitigated negative declaration, found that with mitigation and monitoring, the SCOUP would not cause significant impacts to the environment.

In a related action, the council approved the SCOUP Coastal Development Permit.

With local approvals in hand, Del Mar must now secure approvals from federal and state agencies.

A fully-validated SCOUP would allow the City to readily accept beach-quality material from infrastructure or development projects.

Sand replenishment is one of Del Mar’s top strategies for addressing sea level rise.
