Banning Ranch Coastal Development—Newport Beach

Clean Water

The Newport Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has taken several steps to educate its members on the issue including a meeting at which both open space proponents and the owners presented their plans. After much consideration and discussion, the chapter believes that the open space proposal would provide the maximum environmental benefit if plans to acquire the land have a viable financial plan and will support the full remediation and restoration of the site.

Clean Water

Everyone should have access to clean water to surf, swim and play in. The Surfrider Foundation is taking a multi-tiered approach to tackle ocean pollution problems. We are testing the waters for bacteria and toxins, raising public awareness and finding real solutions to ocean pollution; solutions that restore healthy watersheds, protect local water supplies and keep pollution from reaching the ocean.
