Long-running projects of the Ventura Chapter are the Surfers' Point managed retreat and Matilija Dam removal projects.

  • Surfer's Point Managed Retreat - Since 1986, the Ventura Chapter has been involved in a campaign for "managed retreat" at Surfers' Point. The plan of action that the Surfrider Foundation has proposed throughout this process has been to allow the beach to function naturally. For a decade the chapter has successfully opposed a planned parking lot and seawall, and has advocated relocating a storm-damaged bike path away from the beach and out of harms way. The latest news on this project as it moves into final design and construction can be found at http://www.venturariver.org/
  • Matilija Dam Removal - The engineering concept for removal of Matilija Dam is described at http://www.matilija-coalition.org/ Also described are mitigation measures to address potential impacts to downstream water supplies. Initial designs have been prepared for the siltation basin and high flow bypass, and further design details will continue to be worked out through ongoing analysis and study. This consensus plan allows the process to move forward toward Corps Review, Public Review, and Funding Requests through the federal WRDA process. The project has received press in the Los Angeles Times and local newspapers.
