Coastkeeper to Urge Water Board to Accelerate Newport Bay Copper Pollution Reduction

Date:

  Orange County Coastkeeper will present comments at the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board’s workshops on the proposed copper regulation in Newport Bay. Comments received at these public workshops will help consideration of the adoption or revision of the proposed amendments for the Regional Board’s Basin Plan to incorporate Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) for copper and non-TMDL action plans for other metals in Newport Bay.

Coastkeeper urges that the board adopt a 10-year timeline for its plan and that the timeline starts once the Regional Board approves the plan to reduce pollution. Coastkeeper has assisted the Regional Board on this project since 2006 with various water quality studies and programs and knows that this plan cannot be delayed any further for the sake of Newport Bay’s health.

Copper concentrations in Newport Bay have been above legal standards for decades. Coastkeeper says that the Regional Board’s proposed 12-year timeline to reduce copper in Newport Bay is too long, especially considering that other coastal cities in Southern California with similar boat counts to Newport Bay have adopted 10-year timelines.
