LOS ANGELES (AP) Malibu’s Legacy Park project designed to help clean the city’s famed shoreline is getting a $2 million boost from the Annenberg Foundation.

The idea is to turn the park into an environmental cleaning machine. Storm water will be cleaned at an on-site treatment plant and then used to irrigate the park. The hope is that this will help reduce pollution impacts in Malibu Creek, Malibu Lagoon and Surfrider Beach.

Susan Shaw Noble, the project’s capital campaign coordinator said construction will begin in 2008 and the park likely will open in 2009.

The project has cost $40 million so far.
