5.0 MONITORING
Both physical and biological monitoring are proposed as part of this program. A detailed
biological assessment was conducted by the Chambers Group, Inc. for each of the six beach fill
sites and is included in Appendix B.  Each project site possesses different environmental
resources therefore, each beach fill site will have its own monitoring program tailored to address
them. Physical monitoring will be conducted at each of the beach fill sites and will include beach
profiling and turbidity monitoring. Table 5.1 summarizes the proposed monitoring activities for
each site.

GOLETA BEACH
Goleta Beach is one of the more environmentally sensitive sites.  However, due to direct
interaction with the project biologist, the project has been proactively designed to minimize
potential impacts to sensitive resources in the area.
5.1.1
Biological Monitoring
An underwater survey shall be conducted prior to beach enhancement at Goleta Beach to
determine if an eelgrass bed still occurs offshore from the beach. If an eelgrass bed is observed,
a baseline survey shall be conducted to determine the present health of the bed. The baseline
survey shall establish reference stakes to measure sand deposition and permit transects to
measure eelgrass. Along each transect the eelgrass density, percent cover of eelgrass, length of
