Several beaches in Western Malibu made the Heal the Bay Honor Roll this year …  with a perfect A-plus grades every week all year.

And only two beaches in Los Angeles County were listed as seriously polluted … the beach at Santa Monica Pier … and Cabrillo Beach in the port of Los Angeles. 

The Santa Monica Pier is next to a major storm drain that dumps Street water into the ocean … Plus … the pier is home to hundreds of seabirds that poop in the ocean.

Santa Monica is building a huge underground tank next to the pier to hold storm water … for treatment … even during  rainstorms.

Statewide … a record 37 beaches made the honor roll.

And they heal the Bay report card shows a real trend towards better beach conditions up and down California.


The National Park Service will be using volunteers to conduct surveys of trail users in the Santa Monica Mountains in one week.
