Cleaner Water at Rincon
September 22 2006 |
by Surfrider Foundation
Capping a long battle for clean water at Rincon Point in southern California, a conversion project that will switch the plumbing infrastructure system from septic to sewer-based for Rincon Point and three other nearby beach communities was approved in a 4-0 vote by the Carpinteria Sanitary District at its meeting on September 19.
Big kudos go to the local groups CURE (Clean Up Rincon Effluent) and Heal the Ocean, as well as to Surfrider Founder Glen Henning and his group Groundswell Society, which has put on a Rincon Clean Water Classic surf contest for ten years to raise funds for the fight to eliminate leaking septic tanks at Rincon. more
