Crews Work to Remove Storm Debris From Goleta Beaches


A contractor for the State Lands Commission on Monday, following approval from the City of Goleta, began ridding Haskell’s Beach and the shoreline below Ellwood Mesa of dangerous materials from old oil production sites, which scattered the sand following the March 1 storm. Removing the debris — which includes broken seawall boards and metal pieces — is expected to take about one week. During the process, the city is advising that people avoid the beach or “use extreme caution.”
