Long Beach

Sink the Breakwater and Restore the Shore

Active | February 07 1997

Clean Water

The Chapter has advocated for reconfiguring the Long Beach breakwater for many years and is seeing progress towards this long-term campaign. The goal of this campaign is to allow ocean currents to reach the waters and beaches that are now blocked by an out-dated breakwater. The benefits would include improvements to the marine ecosystem, improved water quality and the restoration of waves that historically attracted surfers and beach-goers and was an important part of the Long Beach economy and quality of life.

Clean Water

Everyone should have access to clean water to surf, swim and play in. The Surfrider Foundation is taking a multi-tiered approach to tackle ocean pollution problems. We are testing the waters for bacteria and toxins, raising public awareness and finding real solutions to ocean pollution; solutions that restore healthy watersheds, protect local water supplies and keep pollution from reaching the ocean.
