Sunset/Huntington Harbour is located in the cities of Seal Beach and Huntington Beach. The County of Orange is responsible for maintaining the marina depths in Sunset Aquatic Marina (Sunset Harbour) and the channel depths in the Main Channel between the Pacific Coast Highway Bridge in Seal Beach and Warner Avenue in Huntington Harbour. The County of Orange has carried out previous maintenance dredging projects in Sunset Harbour with the most recent cycle occurring in 2001. New maintenance dredging needs to be accomplished for waterway navigational purposes both in Sunset Harbour and the Main Channel.

The overall Sunset/Huntington Harbor Maintenance Dredging and Waterline Installation Project (Project) also includes the installation of a 16-inch-diameter waterline under the Huntington Harbour channel. The waterline is the responsibility of City of Huntington Beach and is being installed for fire protection purposes. Because dredging equipment will be required to complete both the maintenance dredging and the waterline installation components, considerable cost and scheduling efficiencies can be achieved by installing the waterline during the maintenance dredging work. A cooperative agreement has been executed to cover the City's portion of the Project.

The disposal sites for dredged material will be at an open ocean Environmental Protection Agency approved site, with a small amount of dredge material to be deposited in the Surfside/Sunset Beach surfzone and a portion at the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge for habitat restoration of marsh areas located adjacent to the harbor. The construction cost for the dredging element is $7,191,091.80 and the waterline is $840,416.20, for a total construction cost of $8,031,508.00.
