dumped on again


this is goleta beach near santa barbara that i have written about several times before
the last blog was titled there they go again

the last time the beach got all the debris stuff from elsewhere placed in big holes in the beach
who knows what is in all that mud rocks wood thats placed there

its even worse
a lot of stuff got literally dumped there
at first it was 500,000 gallons
it seems it was 1,000,000 gallons of sewage that was dumped into a slough that empties into the goleta beach
making it unusable for awhile
they will wait until the bacteria counts get low 
then they will reopen the goleta beach
what could be a beautiful clean oasis 
if it wasnt for all the stuff dumped there
four letter stuff now dumped there

this area use to have the entry way into a large bay that even had boats coming and going
the chumash indians even had a large encampment there
over the time the large bay partially filled in with silt 
the humans filled it in with dirt so that now thats where the local airport sits

in the last two big rains the airport flooded and had to be shut down

this beach could be an oasis for folks to use if it wasnt so contaminated all the time by manmade causes

cant they just let it recover and return to its natural state like the chumash knew it to be

mother nature always wins out eventually  you know
