Crews clean up Santa Ana River Marsh
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District collaborated with the City of Newport Beach, Orange County Public Works, and Orange County Sheriffs Department to remove debris from several unauthorized encampments April 19, that were located in the lower Santa Ana River Marsh, Newport Beach, California. The district team that consisted of Corps Park Rangers, scientists, leaders and workers, combed the marsh to remove (by hand) tons of debris from the ecologically delicate bird nesting area. For the past few weeks, the district has been working closely with the City of Newport Beach and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to plan and coordinate the cleanup. Recognizing the urgency and significance of this task to the local community, all agencies involved have collaborated to ensure that the cleanup is carried out in compliance with all policy and legal regulations.
