Heal The Bay: Taking L.A. by Storm

From Heal the Bay:

When it rains in L.A. County, millions of gallons of water flow over paved surfaces like rooftops, sidewalks, parking lots, and streets. This “urban runoff” picks up animal waste, metals, oil, toxic materials, bacteria, and pathogens, carrying them to our storm drain system to be dumped into our local rivers and beaches, usually with little or no treatment.

Heal the Bay

We need common-sense regulation and protections to ensure that the cities and dischargers meet water quality standards that protect your and your family’s health. The Regional Board is now mulling a new stormwater permit that could result in dirtier water, and a higher risk of getting sick anytime you swim or surf at our world renowned beaches.

 

As the nation celebrates the 40th anniversary of the federal Clean Water Act, we urge the Regional Board to keep strong protections in place in the new stormwater permit. Members must require cities and dischargers to meet water quality standards that make it safe for you and your family.

Join the campaign – Taking L.A. by Storm – to fight for clean rivers, beaches and oceans.

Attend the Regional Board meeting on May 3 and let them know you want to be able to safely swim at our beaches or fish in our rivers.
