The signs are posted by the county of Los Angeles Health De- partment to warn swimmers that there may be bacteria in the water. The signs are warnings only. The beach is not closed to swim- ming. The water used for testing is taken at "ankle depth," about 3 inches. The conditions existing in 3 inches of water are most likely different than the conditions fonnd in deeper water What is the city of Avalon doing , to address water quality issues? Since 2004, the city of Avalon has invested over $3.8 million on Bay Water Issues $500,000 for a circulation and microbiological study of Avalon Bay. The study identified imple- mentation projects to reduce bac- terial contamination. The city of Avalon lined and sealed sewer mains, manholes, and laterals in the first three blocks from the waterfront, repaired plumbing under wharfs and modi- fied street wash down procedures to prevent run-off. $1.3 million to study'the ex- tent of sewage contaminated shal- low groundwater, repair residential sewer laterals, and study sources of Fecal Indicator Bacteria in ankle depth waters. $2 million to continue vari- ous studies and continue with in- frastructure improvements. In September 2008, the city of Ava- lon completed a grant agreement for Proposition 13, Clean Beaches Initiative Funding for the Avalon Bay Water Quality Improvement Project. This project's goal is to inspect and repair/replace approxi- mately 370 residential sewer later- als and to install monitoring wells along Avalon's main beaches to monitor shallow groundwater be- neath the city that may be impact- ing beach water quality. Most of this work has been completed. This summer (2011), the city of Avalon is beginning a $5.1-million project to clean, repair and replace miles of sewer lines and make im- provements at its .sewer plant, its biggest investment yeL In 2007, Avalon Beach was added to a $4.5 million swimmer health effects study The Southern California Coastal Water Research Project, UC Berkeley School of Public Health and Heal the Bay are conducting epidemiology studies that assess if swimmers in Avalon are experiencing any health effects from water quality and beach post- ings. Preliminary results suggest no correlation between illnesses and swimming at posted beaches. Final results are expected in the next few months. As demonstrated by the above actions, the city of Avalon is very concerned about the health and welfare of its residents and visitors and is taking every step possible to eliminate positive test results. - Provided by Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau i --.: Ao 16 ' 211t 343 Catalina - Triplex- Main Unit, 1 BR, 1 BA Vacation Rental. 2 Studios Year Round Rentals.
