ICF is currently working with the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains, California Coastal Conservancy, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation to prepare detailed plans and specifications to guide restoration of Malibu Lagoon, the second largest watershed draining into Santa Monica Bay.
Malibu Lagoon is a 31-acre shallow water embayment located at the terminus of the Malibu Creek Watershed. Located adjacent to the famous Surfrider Beach, the site receives approximately 1.5 million visitors every year and is a key component of the California State Park System. Although it is surrounded by urban development, Malibu Lagoon provides a unique opportunity to restore a portion of the state’s historic coastal wetland habitat. ICF prepared the environmental impact report (EIR) and permit applications for the project. Plans and specifications were completed in the winter of 2010, and construction is expected to begin in the summer/fall of 2011.
