Cities to get added sand, video system for monitoring wave quality

By City News Service

A video system will monitor changing surf conditions at beaches being replenished with sand, the San Diego chapter of the Surfrider Foundation announced recently.

The $28 million beach restoration project by the San Diego Association of Governments is set to begin next month at several beaches, starting in Imperial Beach. When sand was added to the beach most recently, the waves improved for surfing in some spots and deteriorated in others, according to Julia Chunn-Heer, a Surfrider campaign coordinator.

Cameras set up by CoastalComs will enable remote monitoring of surf conditions at the beaches, Chunn-Heer said. A daily archive of images will be created to track changes in surf quality.

According to SANDAG, the sand replenishment project will move on to Oceanside in early October, followed by Moonlight Beach and Cardiff State Beach in Encinitas and near the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad. In November, the replenishment will take place in Solana Beach and other areas along the shore in Carlsbad.
