Contractors are working frantically to complete the berm today in time for its first test, a late season south swell.
Roughly 10-12 feet tall, the berm is designed to protect homes on the low-lying southeast side of the pier from winter flooding. Contractors expect the berm to be done Wednesday at the latest, according to Seal Beach Marine Safety Chief Joe Bailey. The berm will stay up until spring.
