Protect California Waters from Industrial Pollution

    1. Petition by

      Heal the Bay

Too many California beaches, coastal areas, and rivers are plagued by pollution from landfills, oil refineries, metal recycling facilities, and other industrial facilities. Polluted runoff from industrial facilities can contaminate our waterways with lead, aluminum and other toxic pollutants.  These pollutants are highly toxic and endanger California communities and watersheds.  

California's State Water Board has recently issued a Final Draft of their update to the 15-year old Industrial General Stormwater Permit.  Unfortunately, after more than two years of work, the current Draft Permit fails to make necessary improvements, and in several respects, weakens industrial pollution controls.  Please tell the State Water Board to develop a strong Industrial Stormwater Permit and require everyone to do their part to protect California’s waters.

      I feel like pollution is a growing problem that needs to be assessed, and certainly stopped.
