Surfrider Addresses The Erosion At Malibu

Surfrider LA addresses the chronic erosion at Surfrider Beach:

"There has been a lot of discussion about Malibu in the weeks since LA County Beaches & Harbors dropped a dozen 2-ton boulders on the beach to keep the historic Wall at First Point from slipping into the sea. While this emergency situation could've been avoided with proactive planning and resource management, it has served to catalyze the community around short and long-term solutions that we can all (mostly) agree upon.

On July 8th, the Malibu City Council unanimously approved staff recommendations to issue an RFP (Request for Proposal) for a hydrological study of Malibu Lagoon and a coastal morphology study of Surfrider Beach. In addition, Council directed City staff to issue an LCPA (Local Coastal Plan Amendment) for a lagoon management plan. These are critical steps in what will be a long process to address chronic erosion at Surfrider Beach.
