San Francisco Bay’s water quality improves after long-term cleanup efforts

The Daily Californian

Recently, the water quality in the San Francisco Bay has been showing signs of improvement, partly thanks to decades of environmental cleanup efforts... Nonprofit environmental advocacy organization San Francisco Baykeeper, or SF Baykeeper, is in its 29th year of working to improve the bay’s water quality. The organization monitors industrial pollution, stormwater runoff, wastewater and sewage spills, and enforces regulations and permits that are part of state and federal environmental law. "First we notify polluters if we find a violation," said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, executive director and baykeeper of SF Baykeeper. “We have a team of scientists too that can help bring the facility into compliance, and then we follow closely and work with them for three years."
