HUNTINGTON BEACH — The Amigos de Bolsa Chica, an environmental organization, has announced that it supports some sort of a new ocean inlet into the Bolsa Chica wetlands.
But Adrianne Morrison, executive director of Amigos, said the organization is flexible. She said the Amigos group is not tied to the ocean-inlet specifics in the Koll Co.'s development proposal.
The Koll proposal, which was part of a governmental coalition plan drafted three years ago, calls for a 250-foot-wide inlet to be carved into the extreme south end of Bolsa Chica State Beach.
The proposed inlet would allow ocean water to reach the wetlands in the Bolsa Chica Ecological Preserve.
The inlet proposal has recently become controversial. Surfers, including those belonging to the Surfrider Foundation, have charged that the inlet would ruin the beach and cause a loss of good surf.
