The public will have a chance to learn more and sound off on a Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan at a meeting scheduled to be held in Pacifica on Thursday.
The Association of Bay Area Governments and the Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup will shed light on erosion issues affecting coastal infrastructure, such as parking lots, highways, structures, storm drains, and sewage outfalls, on parts of several Bay Area cities including Pacifica.
The groups will also address proposed solutions such as beach nourishment, multi-purpose reefs, armor, allowed erosion, and a managed retreat are among the proposed solutions.
The CRSMP will address geological and geomorphic processes (movement of water and earth affecting sand), habitats and plant and animal species of concern, infrastructure at risk, economic costs/benefits, public access, sea level rise, and policies affecting sediment (sand) management.
The ASAG is providing the governmental structure for the plan. It has commissioned an environmental hydrology firm that will report to a CSMW co-chaired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the California Natural Resources Agency.
ESA PWA, an environmental hydrology firm, is completing this CRSMP for the Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup, a task force co-chaired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the California Natural Resources Agency. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) is providing a governance structure for the effort.
Public meetings soliciting feedback on the CRSMP will be held when its draft is released later this year.
The meeting will be held the meeting at City Hall in the council chambers from 7 to 9 p.m. It follows an identical meeting held in San Francisco last week.
Views on comments on the plan submitted in writing must be postmarked or submitted by e-mail by July 25 to Doug George, ESA PWA Project Manager, 550 Kearny St., Ste. 900, San Francisco CA 94108; or email@example.com.
