ENCINITAS, CA – The City of Encinitas continues to work with UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography to monitor Beacons Beach’s bluff and parking lot, the city announced in a press release.
On May 2, the northern part of the existing historic landslide at Beacon’s Beach was reactivated and moved down west, creating numerous visible cracks in the slope and damage to the existing beach access path from the parking lot.
Since then, Encinitas has worked with Scripps to install slope monitoring equipment to record movement on the slope and deliver data to Scripps and the city. The city’s geotechnical engineer has determined that the cliff is stabilizing based on data collected over the past eight weeks.
