PORT HUENEME PIER
The Port Hueneme Pier was originally constructed at its present location in 1956 by the Hueneme Sanitary District as a construction trestle used for laying a sewer outfall pipeline. The pier was 650 feet long and upon completion of the outfall was opened for public use. The pier was a popular fishing spot for many years until the Army Corps of Engineers commenced their bi-annual beach replenishment project that resulted in a larger beach and a pier that no longer reached the ocean.
