Surfrider and Adamson House: City and County Fail to Prevent Potential Loss of Landmarks from Beach Erosion and Sea Level Rise

 

Historical landmarks The Adamson House and Surfrider Beach are  eroding into the sea because of poor planning by City and County officials.

The Surfrider Foundation put out this announcement yesterday:

“The Surfrider Foundation is dismayed that City and County officials have chosen to drop boulders on the beach at Malibu in order to protect a historic landmark from erosion at First Point. Emergency seawalls are inevitable without proactive planning to accommodate ongoing erosion and the impacts of sea level rise. Surfrider continues to advocate for soft beach nourishment solutions at the Adamson Estate and a seasonal management program to encourage flows to exit Malibu Lagoon  to the west at Third Point. We are calling on all stakeholders to come to the table and develop short- and long-term sustainable solutions that protect the beach at Malibu.“

This is a developing story.
