Breakwater Workshop To Be Held Tonight • Long Beach Post

In an effort to update the community and ask for feedback, the City of Long Beach will host the first of three scheduled public forums about the future of the Long Beach breakwater tonight, at the Belmont Plaza Pool from 6:30-8:30pm.  An overview of the Breakwater Reconnaissance Study will be presented, followed by concerns and questions, ending with a “Hands-on design workshop.”  Any interested residents are welcomed to join.

The City Council voted in June to approve a study to determine the best course of action for the breakwater, which has inhibited ocean circulation.  Many claim that the lack of waves or water movement worsens water pollution on Long Beach coasts.  Engineering firm Moffat & Nicholls has been working on the study, which cost the city $100,000.  No clear timetable has been set for completion of the study.

The other community forums will be held at the dates and times below:

Wednesday, October 29, 2008
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Long Beach Gas & Oil
2400 E. Spring Street

Update: We’ve since been told that the study is expected to be finished in April of 2009.
