Protect the Coast
Keeping the ocean clean and healthy is everyone's responsibility. The ocean is threatened by pollutants left on beaches and roads, which are swept into the water by stormwater and unnatural dry-weather runoff. Stormwater refers to water that originates from a rain event, whereas dry-weather runoff occurs without rain. People can create dry-weather runoff by over-watering landscaping, hosing down outdoor areas or vehicles, or draining a pool to the street. You can make simple changes to eliminate harmful habits and unnecessary runoff. By choosing smart landscaping practices, using environmentally sound cleaning methods, and properly disposing of hazardous materials, we can reduce the amount of pollution that reaches the ocean. The following articles offer ways to protect the ocean for everyone's enjoyment.
