At last month’s Coastal Commission meeting, our Beach Preservation activists & Policy Staff won two important victories to preserve North County’s shrinking beaches from additional coastal armoring. To learn more, check out this blog post from our new Policy Coordinator, Kaily Wakefield.
If you’ve been following the SONGS decommissioning project, you know it’s been a hot mess, literally. Surfrider Staff Scientist, Katie Day, published an update this week with a good overview of the issue + details on our recent and ongoing efforts to get nuclear waste off our coast. Check it out here, and don’t forget to sign the action alert at the end!
Surfrider recently published its Annual Clean Water Report, which tracks the progress of our clean water programs in 2018. Of interest to our Chapter is the San Diego Case Study, which provides a concise overview of how our Blue Water Task Force works in unison with our Clean Border Water Now campaign to solve our decades-old border sewage crisis.
