Clean Beach Report: Monday, November 7, 2016

Dateline: Monday morning, November 7, 2016 on the south side of the Santa Monica Pier. At approximately 8:30 a.m., I arrived at the beach and observed, for the first time ever, a two man crew from the City of Santa Monica's sanitation dept. on the berm cleaning up the #beachtrash down to the water's edge!!!  What a pleasant surprise.  Thereafter, at approximately 9:30 a.m., I took a walk from the Santa Monica Pier to Ocean Park and back and discovered that the beach was, indeed, CLEAN!  #Wow!  #Fantastic!

Just yesterday (Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016) in our audit we chronicled how filthy the beach was between the Pier and Bay St.  The used/soiled diaper was removed, the multiple plastic bottles and glass bottles, including the six pack of Corona beer glass bottles at Bay St. were removed and disposed of.

What a tremendous relief and thrill it was to walk this beach along the shoreline without an accumulation of #beachtrash.

Let's hope it lasts!... and that the City Sanitation Dept. will begin regularly walking along the water's edge and hand picking up the #beachtrash that accumulates each and every day!  #Bravo!

In the meantime, have a look at these photos and videos which hopefully do some justice to how clean and beautiful the beach was along the shoreline of Santa Monica from the Pier to Ocean Park this morning!

Below, in the first 3 photos, City of Santa Monica Sanitation workers are observed on the berm near the water's edge hand picking up #beachtrash!  #Bravo!...

Below, Santa Monica avain residents enjoying the clean beach!...

We are tremendously encouraged to see the beach so clean this morning and to have observed that it was a two man crew from the City of Santa Monica's sanitation dept. hand picking up #beachtrash.  Let's hope this effort continues.  We are mindful, however, that even this past week we observed a clean beach along this same stretch of the shoreline as we reported on November 2, 2016... thereafter, and for the balance of this past week culminating yesterday with a horror story of accumulated #beachtrash, we are thus unable to be confident in the City regularly cleaning up the shoreline.
