USACE San Francisco District Dredging Open House, May 23, 9 - 12
April 27, 2023
The US Army Corps of Engineers San Francisco District invites you to attend the 2023 Dredging Open House on Tuesday, May 23 from 9 – 12.
The U.S. spends $60 million annually to dredge the waterways of the San Francisco Bay and parts of Northern California to support commercial navigation and connect local ports to global markets. Dredging is also a valuable climate adaptation tool: providing sediment to build up tidal wetlands and shoreline communities that are vulnerable to sea level rise. This event will feature:
- Presentations on the San Francisco District’s dredging program, beneficial use of dredged material for coastal resilience, and how your community can access dredged material for adaptation efforts.
- A panel discussion with leaders from the Coastal Conservancy, Manson Construction, Port of Redwood City, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, and San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board on efforts to overcome logistical, regulatory, and financing challenges to maximize beneficial use. The discussion will be facilitated by San Francisco District Environmental Planning and Engineering with Nature Program Lead Julie Beagle.
