Bulldozers were used to place roughly 300,000 cubic yards of sand on the Imperial Beach shoreline in September and October. Earth movers are expected back in IB Tuesday to level uneven areas of sand, said SANDAG representative Shelby Tucker.
Grading will take two days or less along 3,000 feet of shoreline south of Imperial Beach Boulevard, Tucker said.
Uneven areas in sand added to the Imperial Beach shoreline during the 2012 Regional Beach Sand Project caused pooling during rain events and high tide.
Homeowners and residents on Seacoast Drive complained that before sand replenishment even finished that water was seeping through sidewalks and car ports and were concerned about the potential impact to home foundations.
