First rain bring concerns about pollution and erosion in North Bay fire areas

ABC7 News

With a wet weekend on the horizon, the first since the devastating North Bay wildfires, officials at state and local agencies are worrying about what winter rains will carry into the bay. "We are really concerned about all the toxins," said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, Executive Director of San Francisco Baykeeper. "When it rains, that debris is just going to get washed into the water, especially because the trees are gone and there's going to be more sediment erosion."
