Venice Breakwater has Terminal Groin

Venice Beach Sand Renourishment

The beach around the Venice Breakwater is about to get some “sand nourishment” to restore it to the condition it was in before the 2004/5 storms. 30,000 cubic yards of sand will be moved around during this process.

Errosion and restoration projects are also happening at Zuma, Point Dume, Malibu Surfriders, Topanga, Will Rogers and Dockweiler.

Venice City Beach
Los Angeles County Shoreline Mile 31.3 to 32.3

List Source-Survey; LA County Department of Beaches and Harbors

Setting: Wide sandy beach stabilized by rubble-mound groins and breakwater. Beach protects paved day use parking lot, recreation facilities, and private homes.
Project Lead: Los Angeles County

PROBLEM ASSESSMENT

Venice Breakwater has formed a tombolo that acts as a terminal groin. The downcoast section of beach has adjusted by receding landward. Loss of sand has exposed facilities and infrastructure to storm damage. Chronic erosion and storm exposure is expected to degrade with time. LA County expects that shortening the Venice Breakwater could remove its tombolo effect and establish a more stable shoreline configuration.
