The Daily Breeze reports that: Los Angeles County beachgoers will still be able to rinse off the sand and salt after a day at the ocean even though state officials have ordered outdoor showers and rinse stations be shut off at all state parks and beaches.
Although the state owns Dockweiler and Will Rogers state beaches, both are managed by the county’s Department of Beaches and Harbors, which is not required to comply with the water-saving measure.
Craig Sap, superintendent of the Angeles District of the California Department of Parks and Recreation, acknowledged that the agreement at both beaches gives the county full operational jurisdiction. The Parks and Recreation Department handed over jurisdiction of both Dockweiler and Will Rogers state beaches to Los Angeles County in 1975.
“Long before we rolled out this plan to shut off outdoor showers, I contacted both my partners (at Dockweiler and Will Rogers),” Sap said. “I spoke to them and they weren’t going to be shutting them off. They can do that, because they are well within their rights under their operating agreement.”
