Paddling To Improve Water Quality – Bay Parade From The Golden Gate

The Good Brine

Like many bodies of water around the world the San Francisco Bay is heavily affected by pollution. Rain water runoff carries pollutants from refineries, scrap yards, shipping docks, landfills, and countless other industrial facilities into the Bay. There have also been two oil spills in the last 10 years. This is obviously bad news for local wildlife, those of us who surf in San Francisco, and people who care about the health of our environment.
