San Clemente Beach Rebuilding May Start 2013

Congressman Ken Calvert who represents San Clemente until November spoke with city officials on a variety of issues Tuesday.

The feds could start rebuilding San Clemente's eroded beaches as early as 2013, city officials said.

The $10-million beach replenishment program by the Army Corps of Engineers was one of a number of subjects San Clemente city officials discussed in a meeting with Congressman Ken Calvert Tuesday, according to the Orange County Register.

They also discussed potential funding for the La Pata Extension and quiet zone designations for rail/pedestrian crossings in San Clemente.

Where are they getting the sand from? You may not think this is important and think "sand is sand" but The quality and texture, even color of the sand will directly affect the look and clearness of the water. The less fine, silt the more clear and blue the water will appear. I would like to know how they determine what type of sand that will be transported here. It will make a big difference.
