Water Quality Reports Out

Our Heal the Bay team of scientists and analysts just published the annual Beach Report Card and River Report Card. We livestreamed our press conference in Santa Monica on Twitter. Check out our latest maps of water quality grades at Beach Report Card and River Report Card.

SB 54 has Passed

Heal the Bay is encouraged to share that California has just taken a major step forward in addressing the plastic pollution and waste crisis with the passage of Senate Bill 54. Read our full statement on the new law and what it means for our upcoming work.
