Comments on Goleta Beach Project Coastal Development Permit

goleta-beach-nourishment
Beach re-nourishment operations at Goleta Beach, California, March 2010. Goleta Beach County Park, occupies approximately 29 acres with 4,200 feet of beach frontage in Santa Barbara County. An ongoing problem concerning Goleta Beach is coastal erosion; sand and sediment is constantly being washed away and the beach is narrowing. The beach has been eroding at an average rate of 20 feet (6 m)-per-year.Approximately 50,000 cubic yards of sand necessary to Goleta’s beach replenishment, has been collected from Santa Barbara West Beach and Harbor. The nourishment project cost was 1.6 millions dollars. Captions and Photo source: © SAF — Coastal Care

Comments on Goleta Beach Project Coastal Development Permit

Dear Chair Kinsey and Commissioners,

Thank you for considering the following comments regarding the Goleta Beach Project. I submit these comments in order to help the California Coastal Commission develop a balanced solution to the Goleta Beach issue. The Commission staff recommends a 20-year permit authorizing retention of the rock revetments on the west side of Goleta Beach County Park in Santa Barbara County. Retaining the rock revetments will lead to erosion of the beach adversely affecting coastal processes, beach recreation and sand supply.The Commission should help the County pursue a solution that avoids such impacts and that protects Goleta Beach – including the sandy beach – as an important and irreplaceable community resource.

My background enables me to comment on the Project as an expert in the field of coastal processes. My qualifications to comment on this Project include the following:

  • PhD Geology, Florida State University, 1962
  • MS Geology, University of Montana, 1959
  • BS Geology, Washington State College, 1957

My experience lies in basic and applied coastal geology. In addition, I founded and am now the director Emeritus of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Duke University My vita is attached for your information.

I have not visited the beach park in question for at least a decade. My long experience has taught me that all beaches in the world are unique in terms of a combination of parameters including wave climate, atmospheric climate, sand supply, offshore bars, width and sediment cover of the adjacent continental shelf, sediment type, beach orientation, coastal type, sea level rise rate and of course the impact of humans. However in this brief document I address some beach issues that are common to all beaches.
As noted in the EIR, sea level rise is expected to be of the order of 3 feet by the year 2100 due to a combination of ice sheet melting and thermal expansion of the ocean. This will have such a huge impact of low lying areas such as the Goleta Beach Park that the rising sea should be a paramount, overriding factor in any aspect of planning for the park. For this reason the County’s assertion that the impacts of the revetments are not significant is of particular concern to me. The general trend is crystal clear and it makes no sense to ignore the impacts.

The impacts of the revetments or any shoreline revetment will increase over time in just about all regards. Sea level rise rates are increasing and the level of the sea will be higher in coming years which in itself will be responsible an increase in erosion rates at Goleta Beach. In effect, the equilibrium shoreline position will be further inland as a result of sea level rise and erosion rates will increase as the shoreline attempts to readjust to the new conditions. Storm surges will likely increase in intensity as the seas warm. Even if storm intensity doesn’t increase, flooding will increase because of a higher base elevation of the sea. It is a certainty that in the future, both active and passive erosion rates will pick up in front of engineering structures such as the Goleta Beach revetments.

To retain the rock revetments in light of a rising ocean is irresponsible in my view. It means that the response in an attempt to save the park a couple decades from now will be on a crisis basis on a schedule determined by big events (storms). Everything will be on an emergency basis including funding and the time available for planning will be nonexistent. Recognition of the probability of increased sea levels and storm intensities will mean the County will be at least partly prepared. It’s a matter of tactical disarray versus strategic preparation, planned for and primed well in advance.

Apparently the County and Commission staff play down the beach narrowing process (passive erosion) in front of the revetments in part because the natural processes involved are speculative. It’s a mentality that suggests that if you cannot figure it out with certainty, hide your head in the sand. That is, who knows when the next storm will arrive, from what direction it will come, where it will strike, how long it will last, what will the storm’s intensity be and with what frequency will future storms arrive.

Of course no one knows rates of beach narrowing for certain but as coastal engineer Michael Walther of Coastal Tech has pointed out in his comments on the County’s EIR, the extent of narrowing on a decadal time frame is more or less predictable based on current erosion rates along this coastal reach with an adjustment for sea level rise. This will be a ballpark estimate but nonetheless useful for planning and better than one’s head in the sand.

There is no such thing as an accurate forecast of the impact of beach processes on a given beach. (There is no such thing as an accurate forecast of any earth surface process). But often an idea of the future can be gained by looking at neighboring beach projects with more than of decade lifespan.

Strong impacts on adjacent beaches are a near certainty. As the beaches narrow due to passive erosion in front of a revetment the surface from which sand is stirred up by the surf and then transported becomes narrower and the amount of sand transported laterally becomes proportionately smaller. Eventually as the revetment protrudes out onto the original beach, it has a groin effect, trapping sand, causing both beach narrowing and further reducing lateral sand transport, starving the downdrift beaches.

Dr. David Revell (Revell Coastal, Inc.) and Gary Griggs (2006) have already documented narrowing on Goleta Beach as a result of other revetments placed on the beach in prior years. The rock revetments at the west end of Goleta Beach are exposed frequently at all times of the year, as can be seen in photos and google earth images. Given this, it is clear that the revetments are already harming Goleta Beach. Retaining the revetments for a period of 20 years or longer will further exacerbate these impacts including erosion, narrowing and submergence of the beach.

Fundamentally use of hard structures at Goleta Beach should be viewed as a means to protect buildings and park areas behind the structures at the price of loss of the beach. Your Commission should seek to protect coastal-dependent beach uses and balance resource protection at Goleta Beach by requiring removal of the damaging rock revetments and relocation of threatened infrastructure (sewer line, parking spaces and bike path) to other locations within the park. Such relocation has been studied in the County’s EIR, has been priced, and is a feasible alternative which would protect the park facilities, protect the beach from erosion caused by the revetments, and would balance coastal resources including coastal access, recreation and the sandy beach.

Thank you for your attention to these comments.
