Solana Beach and Encinitas’ Reef Breaks Threatened by Beach Fill


Chapter: San Diego County
State: CA
Country: USA
Theme: Coastal Preservation
Launch Date: January 01 2005
Status: Active

The cities of Solana Beach and Encinitas are considering a 50-year beach nourishment project by the Army Corp of Engineers with good intentions. However, all of the alternatives they are considering stand to transform precious reef breaks (including Table Tops, Pill Box, and Stone Steps) into beach breaks, and that is not deemed a significant impact by their own draft Environmental Review documents. We beg to differ!
