Water Quality Sampling at Main Beach

Laguna Beach: Water TestingFrom The City Of Laguna Beach:
The County of Orange has installed a sampling canister at the south end of the Main Beach boardwalk. The device is placed there to capture storm water runoff during two storm events this winter season. As in previous years, the container used to house the equipment is being screened from view by existing trash receptacles. The annual sampling and analysis is a required element of our Orange County Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) Permit.

    Well...It sounds like the County has it all handled...Not.

    Samples are great if you are really planning on doing something about it other than to keep taking more samples every year?

    I think a visual turbidity test and along with the excessive algae, detritus with its foam floating on top is a good indication that a "clean up" is in dire need!

    We have to stop fooling ourselves!
