Surfers Point - More Cobble and Sand

Progress at Surfers' Point: Thousands of tons of cobble have been imported, completing the cobble berm on the east end of the project area. The berm was saturated with sand, then contoured as seen here.

Sand was imported, quickly burying the cobble and widening the beach 60 feet inland.

The view from the east end:

On the west end, the fill under the parking lot was excavated and trucked away for disposal.

Then more cobble was brought in to begin extending the berm to the river levee at the western end of the project area.

This week, project managers got approval from City Council to spend an additional $180,000 on more cobble to fill this area.

In the news: Ventura needs more cobble for beach restoration
