The Openng of the San Dieguito River Inlet

posted 01/25/2010

Opening of the San Dieguito River inlet is now scheduled for later this year.  Three major projects remain to be undertaken and completed before the San Dieguito Lagoon Restoration is completed.

• All permits secured, the pilings of the railroad bridge must be strengthened.
• The inlet must be dredged increasing the tidal flow.
• A revetment must be constructed to protect the southwestern bank of the San Dieguito  river where its course makes a sharp westward turn toward the ocean.

When the nesting and tourist seasons are over, the appropriate time to undertake these major tasks will be after Labor Day 2010.
