When you give to Heal the Ocean, you can be assured your contribution directly helps to reduce pollution sources to the ocean, namely by upgrading wastewater infrastructure and septic-to-sewer projects. We urgently need your help to support additional:
Engineering Studies - Consulting engineers are instrumental in helping us gauge costs of septic-to-sewer projects, and other clean-water projects which is necessary for State grant funding;
Outside Contract Help on Projects - HTO adds paid manpower to local, regional and State projects initiated by us, to move projects forward, i.e., a groundwater management plan for the City of Santa Barbara, conducted with Regional Water Quality Control Board staff;
Legal Counsel - Before we take action on suggested changes to local, regional or State policy affecting water resources and ocean protection, we consult with expert legal counsel.
