HTO Marches into 2014 with More Wins for the Ocean!
GIVE A HOLIDAY GIFT OF A WONDERFUL CLEAN OCEAN AND BE A PART OF HTO’s WINNING TEAM NOW!
In 2013, Heal the delivered the completion of critical ocean-environmental projects in Santa Barbara County. For our work, we earned official recognition from both the California State Senate and Assembly!
Here’s a part of what we did this past year:
- South Coast Beaches Septic-to-Sewer Project – 170 septic systems removed from the coastline, including Rincon, which is under construction, to be completed during Spring 2014.
- Goleta Sanitary District (GSD) Wastewater Upgrade – a $40 million upgrade of the GSD wastewater treatment plant, reducing the amount of solids discharged off Goleta Beach by as much as a ton and a half per day.
- Worked with the County’s Regional Water Management Committee to produce a $100K Recycled Water Plan for Santa Barbara County South Coast, to be sent to public for review in early 2014.
- Participated with many other groups towards the successful passage of a plastic bag ban in Santa Barbara.
