South Orange County

Stopped Expansion of Rock Revetment in Dana Point

Victory | July 12 2012

Coastal Preservation

Orange County Parks Dep't proposed rebuilding and expanding a 1300 foot rock revetment along the Niguel Shores coastline. The new wall would have dramatically impacted shoreline processes, sand supply and public beach access over the next 30 years. Neither the county nor the homeowners that would benefit from the wall had offered any sort of mitigation to offset these impacts.

Coastal Preservation

Beaches are a unique and dynamic landscape that should be protected for the future. The Surfrider Foundation is leading efforts at the state and local levels to protect our shorelines on every coast. Our efforts are focused on establishing appropriate setbacks for development, opposing shoreline structures, and placing coastal lands in public trust.
