From the quality of our educational content to the effectiveness of our advocacy work, we know that Coastkeeper’s approach to protecting and restoring clean water in San Diego County is more effective when it is based on sound science. That’s why we ran the state’s largest volunteer based water quality monitoring program for ten years, conduct winter stormwater monitoring each rainy season, and regularly participate in supplemental projects and studies from bioassessments to fish gut analysis to debris studies of the habitats around San Diego Bay.
