A pipe exploded yesterday at a Solana Beach sand-replacement project, suspending work on the site.
The pipe was part of an effort to replace sand on that and seven other beaches along the Pacific coast for the Regional Beach Sand Project. The project will place more than a million cubic yards of sand on these beaches.
Witnesses say that a large metal plug about the size of a manhole cover was flung into the air alongside other debris as a result of the explosion. Luckily, no one was immediately injured.
