Malibu Lagoon is Looking Good
The recent “Malibu Lagoon Restoration and Enhancement Project Comprehensive Monitoring Report (Year 2)” is the first report to fully compare and evaluate pre-restoration conditions to two years of post-restoration conditions.
We’re excited to share that, based on the first two years of a 5-year monitoring program, the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project shows it is on track to meet or exceed the documented criteria for success.
The Project’s core goals included improving the ecological health of the lagoon’s system by enhancing habitats for native wildlife, creating several acres of new wetlands, and increasing tidal flushing and water circulation to improve water quality and eliminate the “dead zones” and oxygen-deprived areas.
