The city of Malibu sent a letter to the California Coastal Commission on Monday expressing some last-minute concerns about the Malibu Lagoon project.In the letter, the city outlined its objections to a monitoring and final dewatering plan that the California State Parks submitted to the commission as part of the process to obtain a final permit, Malibu City Manager Jim Thorsen said. State Parks is the lead agency on the project, which is slated to begin June 1.“The Coastal Commission is the governing board that issues the permit. We wanted them to have all the details of our concerns with the dewatering plan and the monitoring plan,” Thorsen told the Malibu City Council at its Monday night meeting.Thorsen said the city found several inconsistencies in a three-day dewatering plan that calls for the collection and discharge of about 11,000 gallons of water per minute.“They have a treatment plant that treats at about a 1,000 gallons a minute being proposed. That means they have a deficiency of about 10,000 gallons a minute,” Thorsen estimated.He added that the plan calls for the storage of 45 million gallons of water somewhere on site.“We found it very problematic that they didn’t identify that nor do I see it discussed in their monitoring plan at all,” Thorsen said.
TSI ReviewIn the Philippines a lot of avid surfers from the city (such as myself) don't have the privilege of living close to the ocean. So we have grown accustomed to making the 5-hour drive to La Union, Baler and other spots every weekend to spend just two precious days a week in the sea. Being a weekend surfer for most of my surfing life, I see the importance of making the most of each session--and taking lessons with Carla Rowland has helped me maximize my water time. I would say that I have improved much quicker thanks to Carla's watching me like a hawk during our coaching sessions. She tells me exactly what I need to work on, down to the specifics of footwork, and the little nuances in my stance and style--she will even help put me in the right mental state to catch better waves, and ride them with more refined skill. All these things put together have helped me improve a lot faster. Now that I am surfing better and with more confidence, I am having more fun than ever. Thanks, Carla!
