Dredging continues in Atascadero Creek and the Goleta Slough near Ward Memorial Drive in Goleta. The stockpiles of sediment are now being trucked to the west end of Goleta Beach. on the access road near the bike path. Removing the sediment that has settled in the slough reduces the flood risk and protects homes and business in the area. The suitable settlement of the material also nourishes our local beaches. The entire project will be finished by the middle of November. For more information on this and other water resources projects, visit http://countyofsb.org/pwd/water.sbc
