Obtain emergency funding to restore the rapidly eroding Hueneme Beach

There is a huge threat to hundreds of homes and business as well as millions of dollars in infrastructure in the Port Hueneme area. Since January, abnormally high tides, large waves, and high winds along the Ventura County coastline have reduced the sand the Army Corps placed at the beach in December 2012. Due to Army corps budget constraints, the recent sand bypass operation was inadequate to sustain the shoreline until the next scheduled transport. Consequently, Hueneme beach is experiencing dangerous erosion that threatens basic city infrastructure, flooding of homes and businesses, and the deep water Port of Hueneme. Please restore this beautiful beach to its normal state through a mid-cycle dredge of the Channel Islands Harbor sand trap.
