Watershed Management Plan
The City of San Diego, University of CA, San Diego/Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UCSD/SIO), and San Diego Coastkeeper make up the La Jolla Shores Coastal Watershed Management Group. Their priority...
San Diego Coastkeeper's efforts have helped to reduce the number of sewage spills by 90% since 2001.
San Diego Coastkeeper and the San Diego Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation conduct twice-monthly beach cleanups. We work with more than 4,000 volunteers each year.
In 2008 and 2009, Coastkeeper and our north county partners successfully advocated for significant fines (totaling $2 million) for spills in Buena Vista Lagoon and Escondido Creek.
It's in order: reduce, reuse THEN recycle.
Each year Coastkeeper brings together nearly 5,000 cleanup volunteers to remove more than 7,000 pounds of trash.
San Diego Coastkeeper has trained over 700 volunteer water quality monitors.
A "consent decree" is a legal tool that provides an enforceable timeline and milestones for pollution cleanup and prevention.
Coastkeeper volunteers removed over 560 pounds of trash from Mission Bay on a single morning in October 2013.
