This report describes the proposed La Jolla Children's Pool Beach Management and Water Quality Improvement Project. Approximately 3,000 cubic yards of sand will be removed from the Children's Pool beach. Removing the sand decreases the beach width and restores the sheltered water pool area to its 1940s configuration. Reducing the width of the beach will make the pool safer for swimming by isolating swimmers from open-ocean wave activity. It should also improve water circulation and quality.
