+ Litter Booms Are Installed

The Miocean Foundation is pleased to announce two litter booms across the Talbert & Huntington Channels, that drain several square miles into the Santa Ana River jetty area, are built and operational. These booms will trap and collect tons of floating trash that otherwise ends up on our beaches and in our coastal waters. After extensive research (including sessions with LA County who operates several booms), Miocean agreed to source funding for the construction cost, and the County has agreed to sponsor the design and permitting. The County has also agreed to operate and maintain the Litter Booms for 10 years with twice/year regular clean outs and other clean-outs as needed due to weather conditions.
