In Yesterday's Chronicle: Sand Dredging and Beach Erosion
This story came out yesterday in the San Francisco Chronicle. I was interviewed Saturday for a quick piece on KCBS radio about the story, which I understand also ran Sunday, but I wasn't able to catch it. In any case, it's not exactly breaking news, but an interesting issue that needs some light shed on it. Comments to the piece at SFGate.com, where vitriol is often par for the course (especially on environmental stories), suggest that most readers are sympathetic to SF Baykeeper's lawsuit and the idea of managing sand mining to reduce costly impacts to coastal beaches -- and are glad to have learned about it through the story. The story includes some great photos by Michael Macor, too. See them and read the story here.
