1/9 DEBRIS FLOW SEDIMENT DEPOSITS END AT GOLETA BEACH COUNTY PARK AND CARPINTERIA BEACH AT ASH AVENUE

Since the 1/9 Debris Flow, one of Santa Barbara County’s primary health and safety priorities has been to clear debris basins, creeks and roads of material as quickly as possible to prepare for future storms and to help the community of Montecito recover.

A majority of the debris on public lands has now been cleared to meet these goals. More than 18,000 truckloads of mud, sediment, boulders, rocks, trees and trash have been removed from Montecito and Carpinteria. Approximately 12 percent of the total amount of public property debris, consisting predominantly of sediment, was trucked to two federal and state-permitted beach disposal sites, including Carpinteria Beach at Ash Avenue and Goleta Beach County Park. The remaining materials were trucked to various public and private disposal sites in the region.
