Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan–Stakeholder Advisory Group

Watershed Management

The Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup (CSMW) has been working to develop Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plans (CRSMPs) along the California coast. The San Francisco Littoral Cell Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan is currently being developed to assist government entities, municipalities, stakeholders, and communities in developing strategies for beneficial reuse of sediments within the region from the Golden Gate to Pacifica to address coastal erosion. This site will host files for the Stakeholder Advisory Group for the San Francisco Littoral Cell CRSMP.
