About the San Dieguito Lagoon Committee
The Lagoon Committee is charged with overseeing the preservation and enhancement of the San Dieguito Lagoon. The committee participates on both local and regional levels. Locally, the committee is provided with monthly sampling reports to monitor the health of the Lagoon, investigates additional public access opportunities, and develops an educational program to uncover a few of the Lagoon's little-known points of interest.
Regionally, the committee participates in the on-going programs of the San Dieguito River Valley JPA, including the lagoon restoration plan, and monitors development that may have an adverse effect on the Lagoon. The committee oversaw the design and construction of Riverpath Del Mar, a meandering path along the southern bank of the Lagoon west of Jimmy Durante Blvd. As urban development further encroaches into the county's open spaces, the Lagoon Committee works hard to keep the San Dieguito Lagoon the regional treasure it is and endeavors to enhance the Lagoon's function, health, and accessibility.
