In 1926, the Santa Ana River dam failed, and flash-flooded its entire delta (river delta). The southern oceanic terminus of this delta is now a settled area of Huntington Beach. The distant dam is still functional, but silting up, which is expected to reduce its storage volume, and therefore its effectiveness at flood-prevention. The flood and dam-endangered areas are protected by a levee, but lenders require expensive flood insurance in the delta. There have been serious discussions to eliminate the need for flood insurance and this requirement has already been waived in some areas and may one day no longer be considered a credible threat. Since it is a seaside city, Huntington Beach has had tsunami warnings, storm surge (its pier (Huntington Beach Pier) has been rebuilt three times), sewage spills, tornadoes and waterspouts. The cold offshore current prevents hurricanes. The Pier that was rebuilt in the 1990s was engineered to withstand severe storms or earthquakes. Large fractions of the settled delta are in earthquake liquefaction zones above known active faults. Most of the local faults are named after city streets. Many residents (and even city hall) live within sight and sound of active oil extraction and drilling operations. These occasionally spew oil, causing expensive clean-ups. Large parts of the developed land have been contaminated by heavy metals from the water separated from oil. The local oil has such extreme mercury contamination that metallic mercury is regularly drained from oil pipelines and equipment. Oil operations increase when the price of oil rises. Some oil fields have been approved for development. The worst-polluted areas (brownfields) have been reclaimed as parks. At least one Superfund site, too contaminated to be a park, is at the junction of Magnolia and Hamilton streets, near Edison High School. in length, it is one of the longest public piers on the West Coast (West Coast of the United States).

Huntington Beach, California

'''Huntington Beach''' is a seaside city in Orange County (Orange County, California) in Southern California. The city is named after American businessman Henry E. Huntington. The population was 189,992 during the 2010 census (2010 United States Census), making it the most populous beach city in Orange County and the seventh most populous city in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim MSA. It is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the southwest, by Seal Beach (Seal Beach, California) on the northwest, by Costa Mesa (Costa Mesa, California) on the east, by Newport Beach (Newport Beach, California) on the southeast, by Westminster (Westminster, California) on the north, and by Fountain Valley (Fountain Valley, California) on the northeast.

Huntington Beach (AKA "H.B.") is known for its long stretch of sandy beach, mild climate, excellent surfing, and beach culture. The ocean waves are enhanced by a natural effect caused by the edge-diffraction of open ocean swells around the island of Catalina (Santa Catalina Island, California). Swells generated predominantly from the North Pacific in winter and from a combination of Southern Hemisphere storms and hurricanes in the summer focus on Huntington Beach creating consistent surf all year long, thus the nickname "Surf City".
