Dredging in Redondo Beach

The 33rd Congressional District encompasses the entire Santa Monica Bay, from Palos Verdes to Malibu.

Redondo Beach is growing out because the US Army Corps of Engineers from the entrance channel of Marina del Rey so that Emergency responders can more easily enter the Marina.

The Port of Long Beach will also be receiving sand from Marina del Rey as part of its Middle Harbor Redevelopment Project.

Where has all the sand gone? Marina del Rey is opening up to more traffic, apparently, for better or for worse.

First Malibu reports that its shoreline is receding, then Redondo Beach gets extra coastline, instead. Why did the state of California not direct the extra sand to Malibu in the first place?

This is an interesting trend.
