30,000 Cubic Yards of Sand Headed to Venice Beach
A sand replenishment project has been approved for Venice Beach, which means the eroded landscape will soon get a $1.6 million boost in the form of 30,000 cubic yards of sand, according to CBS.
The project was approved yesterday by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, who have been charged with maintaining the beach since 1975, despite the fact that Venice is part of the City of Los Angeles.
Over the course of six to eight weeks, sand will be moved from an area north of the breakwater to replenish the eroded beach; the project should get underway next month.
