Shoreline Management


The San Diego region's beaches provide recreational opportunities and are a vital component of the economy. In recent years, our work has evolved from focusing on erosion control to planning for and adapting to impacts from sea level rise.

Current Shoreline Management Projects

Regional Shoreline Monitoring Program

Measures the changes in beach width over time, documents the benefits of sand replenishment projects, and helps improve the design and effectiveness of beach fills.

Sand Compatibility and Opportunistic Use Program

Provides protocols and templates for a generic regional opportunistic sand program for California.

Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan

Seeks consensus driven regional sediment management guidance and policy.

Regional Transportation Infrastructure Sea Level Rise Assessment and Adaptation Guidance
