Beach Erosion Concern Area Lines

Metadata Updated: April 9, 2015

Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup (CSMW) efforts are primarily coordinated through development of the California Sediment Master Plan (SMP), which lays out a number of objectives, goals and tasks to implement Regional Sediment Management (RSM) throughout coastal California. A fundamental principle of RSM is the application and placement of sediment within a regional area of the coast to address problems such as eroding beaches. Consequently, the CSMW has determined that the SMP effort needs to identify Beach Erosion Concern Areas (BECAs) where current or historical erosion is of concern to state, federal or local entities, or CSMW members. The list is periodically updated with information from completed Coastal RSM Plans; listing source specifies entities identifying the concern.

Access Constraints Use Constraints: This list is intended solely to inform decision-makers on the extent and types of beach erosion problems facing the state; inclusion of a particular location in the list does not prescribe or imply that a particular remedial measure (e.g., beach nourishment) is appropriate at that location; only that it has been identified as of concern by some jurisdictional entity. The BECA list is based on information available to the CSMW at this time; locations may be added to or removed from the BECA list in the future as more information becomes available, especially as various segments of coastal California complete region-specific Coastal RSM Plans in coordination with the CSMW. Information is presented in this report solely for consideration by federal, state, and local government agencies, organizations, and committees involved in the management and protection of coastal resources in California. The list of BECAs has not been accepted nor approved by any governmental agencies and, as such, should not be construed to represent policy for any agency mentioned in this document. This document was prepared with significant input from CSMW members but does not necessarily represent the official position of any CSMW member agency., Access Constraints:
