the coastal erosion problem at Sloat?



















Ocean Beach (OB) south of Sloat Avenue in San Francisco is experiencing significant coastal erosion to the coastal bluffs. The parking lot is crumbling into the Pacific before our eyes and over the years the shoreline has been armored leaving the shoreline in a state of disarray. There are efforts underway to control the erosion and there are several agencies involved (Coastal Commission, SF Public Works, Army Corps of Engineers, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, United States Geological Survey, ...). The coming blogs will describe the complicated jurisdiction, current research and ongoing activities to control erosion at OB.
