CONSTRUCTION SHACK ON PCH DEMOLISHED
A long-abandoned construction shed along Pacific Coast Highway that had been turned into a home by a transient was bulldozed by a Los Angeles Recreation and Parks crew on Tuesday morning, near the mouth of Potrero Canyon. Thus ended the homesteading by Tachowa ('Rollerball') Covington, following months of complaints by Pacific Palisades residents that the shack was an eyesore. Their next goal is to have the City remove the adjacent water tank, where Covington has also been living.

SEPTIC PROHIBITION APPROVED IN MALIBU
Yesterday 9/21 in Sacramento, the CA Water Board unanimously (5/0) approved septic prohibition we won for Malibu Civic Center last November. This means the City of Malibu will be held to a deadline for solving their water quality issues, and must find a wastewater treatment solution that will alleviate the need for septics in the area around our wave. Commercial facilities must be off septics by 2015 and residential sites must be off by 2019.
