Baykeeper Launches Bay-Safe Industry Campaign
This week, Baykeeper is launching our new Bay-Safe Industry campaign to rein in rampant, illegal runoff into San Francisco Bay from industrial facilities.
More than 1,000 Bay Area industrial facilities are violating the Clean Water Act during the rainy season, polluting the Bay with runoff contaminated with toxics that include heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons.
The Bay-Safe Industry campaign includes outreach and education to improve practices at industrial facilities, advocacy for tighter regulation of industrial storm water and legal action to compel polluters to stop contaminating the Bay.
