Once upon a time, before the construction of the breakwater off the Long Beach coastline in the 1940s, the city was renowned for its waves, which drew surfers from across the region to a beach that had been dubbed the “Waikiki of the Southern California.”

Now, a process that has been trudging on for close to two decades seems to be inching closer toward a resolution, as Mayor Robert Garcia confirmed today, after meeting with Brigadier Gen. Mark Toy, that the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has agreed to commence with a feasibility study concerning the future of the Long Beach Breakwater.
