In Reply to: Toilet Bowl Reef in Malibu is getting cleaned up. posted by Ross-O on May 26, 2010 at 08:41:46:
I don't have the numbers with me, they are on the boat. We are going out tomorrow, Monday for another load. If you call the boat phone- xxx-xxxx or my cell xxx-xxxx I can give you the location.
Last week we pulled 11 tons of toilets off and have about the same number left. There are even more tires in the area. We hope to have it cleaned up by the end of the week.
There are other toilet bowl reefs in the area but this is the only one I'm interested in cleaning up because it covers part of one of the most important reefs in Malibu. This reef is the only reef in Malibu which goes from the tide pools to deep water. The toilets were laid right across it. It has some life but not as much as the natural reef nearby. It is also a migratory path for lobster and other species.

Don Robarge here from the Ocean Defenders Alliance, Thanks for the effort off the 'Bu.
I wonder if you might offer us the numbers for that particular reef so we could make a run up there next week? We'd like to see it for curiosity's sake, and maybe shoot some video.
All the best,
