Cobble Mining

Ventura River Cobble Mining

May 20, 2007 – Matilija Creek – near Stream Team Site 15 – Cobble mining is common along Matilija Creek and the Ventura River, driven by a local market for landscaping and walls. (Bureau of Reclamation noted areas devoid of cobble-sized sediments during surveys for Matilija Dam Feasibility Study.)
