Southern California - May 2015
Southern California beaches are the preferred destination for millions of tourists each year. When ocean storms caused severe damage to these coastal resources, a plan was enacted to deliver clean sand to restore the eroded beaches. The project was designed to bolster the region’s economy, restore the environment for wildlife, and protect neighboring properties from ocean waves.
A contractor was selected to provide clean sand from an offsite location and deliver the material via end dump, 10-wheel trucks to a specific location. Rock Systems, Inc. was chosen to provide a material handling system designed to unload the trucks and to stockpile the sand. The following equipment completed the system:
The contractor provided track mounted dozers to distribute the stockpiled material, to replenish the eroded beach sand.
