Kelp accumulates on area beaches
Kelp forests have grown in Laguna waters, and over the past two weeks, the beaches from Main Beach to Bluebird Beach have been inundated with kelp, the city manager stated in the June 4 Friday update.
"Public works crews have doubled efforts to remove the kelp on a daily basis," Frank stated, adding, "This morning alone, 15 tons of kelp was removed from Main Beach."
