The County's new plan to move the sewer line at Goleta Beach Park further inland and out of the erosion hazard zone is a great idea.
The Goleta Beach 2.0 Project will help avoid future sewage spills on the beach if it moves the sewer line further inland and out of harms way.
The sewer line should be moved inland all the way to Highway 217 so that it will be protected from future coastal erosion ... and to lessen the threat of sewage spills at Goleta Beach.

EDC's plan would end drilling from 4 platforms off the coast. It is all about ending drilling. EDC has worked for decades to stop new drilling and get rid of existing platforms. This deal includes a first ever end date that would require shutting down the 4 existing drilling rigs. No new drilling rigs would be installed. Without this deal, through improvements in slant drilling technology, a larger offshore reserve sitting nearby will one day be tapped. Only by getting end dates can we avoid the 4 platforms pumping for decades, aging, corroding and increasing the risk of oil spills.
Thank you to EDC, Get Oil Out and Citizen Planning Association - this area's groups that truly want to stop and get rid of oil development.
Did EDC get paid for its work to oppose offshore oil development and seek ways to eliminate existing drill rigs and the risk of spill they pose every day? Good. EDC deserves to get paid for its work to protect our air, oceans and coastlines - and nobody does it better. I'm sending my check in today.
