Unique Project To Deal With Erosion At Popular South Coast Beach At Halfway Point

Posted on Thursday, December 6, 2012 12:43am


The ocean has been trying to reclaim a bike path, and other facilities at a popular South Coast beach.

Officials looked at using a seawall to protect the beach, but that approach can create new environmental problems, and is being restricted by the State Coastal Commission.

So, a unique project that’s been underway for about two years is trying a new approach, by in effect ceding the land to the ocean.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has an update on the project in Ventura.
