Document Description
The Malibu Lagooon Restoration and Enhancement Plan (Plan) presents a comprehensive approach to restore and enhance the ecological sturcture and function of Malibu Lagoon to improve Lagoon and coastal water quality, as well as to enhance visitors' experience through improvements to access and interpretation. The Plan has identified a restoration alternative to restore the biological and physical functions of the lagoon, including management of water, habitat and access, as well as a comprehensive monitoring plan, while mimimizing impacts to the existing system. The restoration goals for the lagoon consist of increased tidal flushing, improved water circulation, improved coastal water quality, increased holding capacity, reduced predator encroachment, restoration of typical salt marsh hydrology, increased wildlife habitat, creation of nesting island for least terns and western snowy plovers, creation of channel connections to the lagoon, and integration of public access with habitat protection. Major components of the Plan consist of a relocated parking lot and staging area, implementation of Best Management Practices to minimize impacts of storm water runoff, slope improvements to the western edge of the lagoon, improvements to the existing boat house channel, and the creation of a new channel along the southern edge of the west lagoon.
