Pacific Rim

Water Quality Monitoring

Active |

The chapter is engaged in a campaign to address the dumping of sewage into the ocean as well as monitoring local water quality. Pacific Rim Surfrider applied for a grant from Clayoquot Biosphere Trust for a yearlong water-testing project, with the objective being to establish a baseline of water quality at some of the popular beaches in the area. Unfortunately, the grant was not approved. There is currently some water testing in the area, but it is not done very frequently at the beaches
