California Ocean Wastewater Discharge Report and Inventory

March 01, 2010

This report is a compilation of extensive research by Heal the Ocean to document the quality and extent of wastewater discharges into the Pacific Ocean – from the Oregon border to San Diego/Tijuana – in the State of California. This report includes permit information, quantity and quality of wastewater discharged, quantity of recycled water produced, and a discussion of conservation and water recycling measures to prevent ocean pollution. David Greenberg, PhD, of the Marine Science Institute at UCSB, developed an interactive map that accompanies the report and shows latitude & longitude of wastewater outfalls, 303(d) impaired beaches, areas of special biological significance, and marine sanctuaries.
