WHITE POINT LANDSLIDE - Final Report, June 18, 2012



On Monday, June 18, 2012, City Engineer Gary Lee Moore, and geotechnical experts from the consulting firm Shannon & Wilson presented the findings contained in an 800-page report on the White Point Landslide – the November 20th 2011 geologic event that destroyed a portion of Paseo Del Mar, adjacent to the White Point Nature Preserve in San Pedro. The report details the factors that contributed to the slide, presents recommendations to improve the stability of the site and prevent future ground movement, and presents several long-term repair options for Paseo Del Mar.

Graded roadway with a dip - $4 to $8 million seems the best.

Reroute the road through the preserve for reasons of cost, long term durability and to best serve the community.
