Parade on the water celebrates turn of the tide for bay pollution

San Francisco Chronicle

The amazing thing about the 35 people who swam for miles in the San Francisco Bay on Sunday — besides that they swam for miles in the San Francisco Bay — is that they came out of the water soiled only by saltwater. Maybe some seaweed...  Baykeeper’s fifth annual Bay Parade is expected to raise $100,000 for the organization that sued the federal government and helped rid the bay of 57 defunct and decaying military ships — known as the Ghost Fleet — that for years leached tons of grease and heavy metals into the water.
