Actions & Comments

This is my initial observation of CoastWatch Mile 223. The attached photos show baseline erosion of toe-slope south of Beverly Beach State Park, below and/or adjacent to Highway 101. It is assumed that ODOT is following this erosion near the highway, therefore no action has been taken by me.
