1983: Rebuilding of coastline will cost $15.3 million

A storm billed as the state’s “worst winter storm in nearly a century” rocked the California coastline and resulted in millions in repairs needed for breakwaters, seawalls and waterfront structures up and down the coast.

According to the Sept. 9, 1983 story, the Army Corps of Engineers began the process of fixing damaged structures after the funds were appropriated by Congress. Areas affected included Dana Point’s breakwater, the Mission Bay north jetty, the King Harbor breakwater and Anaheim Bay’s jetty. Heavy shoaling also occurred in Oceanside Harbor, which required dredging.
