Surfers Point cleanup

In what is probably the biggest "beach cleanup" in Ventura County history, contractors last week made progress on demolition work at Surfers' Point. Piles of concrete, asphalt, and rocks accumulated rapidly with the work of heavy machinery.

The rock 'rip-rap' revetment near the rivermouth was moved to the Fairgrounds parking lot.

(The revetment was constructed without permits in 1992 and now, 18 years later, it has finally been removed from the beach.)

A portion of the asphalt bike path was removed.

Much of this concrete and asphalt will be recycled and re-used in the new parking lot.

The design plans and more information about the history of the project are at
