Long Beach Breakwater Controversy

Mother Wants Her Beauty Back
Documentary film addressing the controversy surrounding the Long Beach Breakwater. Several Environmental groups, including the Surfrider Foundation, would like to modify or remove the Long Beach Breakwater to allow better water circulation and a more natural coastline environment at the mouth of the Los Angeles River. Most shippers and some local residents oppose those changes because they feel the breakwater provides necessary protection from storm damage.
