Public Forum on Sand Mining in Southern Monterey Bay

A panel of experts will discuss the local impacts of sand mining by CEMEX along the California Central Coast shoreline - specifically on how the mine is severely accelerating erosion rates.

Panelists: Dr. Edward Thornton, distinguished professor emeritus at the Naval Postgraduate School and an internationally recognized expert on coastal erosion, Bruce Delgado, Marina mayor, and Ximena Waissbluth, chair of the Surfrider Foundation Monterey Chapter.

The program will start with a screening of “The Last Sand Mine”, a short, (9 min 20 sec), documentary that calls attention to the destructive impact of CEMEX’s Lapis Lustre sand mining operation on the shoreline of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

The program will end with a Q&A and announcements of upcoming State and Local actions to address potential Coastal Act violations.
