Construction on the dike, separating the main body of the lagoon from the back channels, is moving forward at the Malibu Lagoon.
The project is due to the lower water level of the lagoon, caused when a sand berm separating the Malibu Lagoon from the ocean burst, draining most of the water from the back channels of the Lagoon.
Davide Ruth, a liaison between California State Parks, the lead agency on the project and the contractor, said that the 10-foot-wide dike will eventually be used for public beach access.
Opponents of the project, who have been watching the progress from the Pacific Coast Highway bridge, said Friday they are concerned about the work because of the open berm. They fear sediment from the channels will travel out of the lagoon and into the nearby ocean.
