Cliff Safety For Beachgoers 

After the recent storms, we are seeing a lot of debris on the beach from fallen rocks, cliffside dirt, and trees. The images depicted in the first two slides below were taken first-hand by Isla Vista residents, showing the aftermath of a record-breaking storm last week. See below for warning signs of an unstable cliff and tips on how to remain safe while visiting the beach.

The Isla Vista Surfrider Foundation checks water quality in IV and is currently showing high bacteria in the ocean. This is in part due to a 5,000-gallon sewage spill during the last storm. We advise all residents to check Surfrider's water monitoring website, which provides the most up-to-date information on bacteria levels in Isla Vista beaches. 

Stay safe out there and report any issues you see!
