Beach Peninsula Sand Berm Project

The City of Long Beach, Department of Parks, Recreation & Marine
Will be installing small berms on the inner bay beaches.
The Project will aid us in stabilizing and protecting our local beaches.

Timeframe: June 09, 2014 through August 19, 2014

Building the Berms
The berms will minimize the immediate sand loss due to high tides and give residents a drier beach.
