The Regional Beach Sand Project II (RBSP II) consisted of placing 2.35 million cubic yards of beach quality sand to replenish eight San Diego County beaches, with locations ranging from Oceanside in the north to Imperial Beach in the south.
The purpose of the project was to replenish beaches in accordance with the Shoreline Preservation Strategy (SPS) and Regional Sediment Management (RSM) Plan. The completed project serves four main functions: (1) replenishes the three littoral cells in the San Diego region and receiver sites with suitable beach sand; (2) provides enhanced recreational opportunities and access at the receiver sites; (3) enhances the tourism potential of the San Diego region; and (4) increases protection of public property and infrastructure.
