The new sand project will bury all of this and more.

Greetings Surfriders and Friends,

We have great news to report: Some of the worst of the hazardous debris at Sloat has been removed from the beach. As many of you probably know, the sand replenishment work is in overdrive building safe access to the water just in time for our Fall surf season.   Thanks to all those in our community who showed up at July's sand management meeting or sent letters to government officials supporting this action. Also, thank you SFPUC, SFDPW, and NPS for listening to our concerns.  This kind of communication and cooperative action is exactly what we were hoping to establish thru the Ocean Beach Master Plan.  Do stay tuned for new developments this fall as there will be plenty of new opportunities to weigh in on public projects slated for our beach.

Surfrider and others from our community have been advocating that this kind of debris be removed before the sand drop.
