Lawsuit calls for increased protection for Bay from industrial pollution

San Francisco Examiner

A lawsuit filed today by the California Coastkeeper Alliance against the State Water Resources Control Board claims that the agency is not doing enough to protect the San Francisco Bay and other waterways across the state from industrial pollution. . .  “San Francisco Bay is plagued by pollutants such as copper, lead, zinc, arsenic and trash; industrial facilities such as scrap metal yards, waste transfer stations, and auto-dismantlers are a significant source,” said Jason Flanders, Baykeeper Program Director.
