San Francisco Bay Sand Mining Impact Analysis, CA

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed coastal engineering morphology analysis and Bay-wide 3D numerical modeling as part of the CA State Lands Commission (CSLC) Sand Mining Environmental Impact Report generated to address the future available sand mining resources and impacts of the mining activities on circulation, water quality, sediment transport and morphology within the Bay and Pacific Ocean shorelines.  The Final EIR was certified by the CSLC Board in February 2013 and is available for download at the website here (see Appendix G for Coast & Harbor’s work).
