This article references a 1996 Army Corps of Engineer Report that suggested coastal armoring at Sloat -- this was PRE-Ocean Beach Taskforce, which eventually lead to an Army Corps of Engineer Project that helped renourish Ocean Beach at Sloat Blvd.

The Army Corps of Engineer Project places sand annually that is dredged from the main ship channel into San Francisco Bay in the coastal zone offshore at Sloat Blvd. The goal is to deposit sand in the near-shore location that will work its way onto the shoreline and build up the width of Ocean Beach at Sloat Blvd.
