Santa Barbara County had begun building a sand berm for the winter that will cover 2,400 ft. along Goleta Beach.

City officials are hoping it will keep flooding from damaging structures throughout the anticipated heavy storm season this year.

Large waves could potentially damage power lines, water lines, restrooms, park facilities and the Beachside Restaurant which has sustained flooding in years past during large winter storms.

Completion is anticipated by the end of the month.
