Welcome to Humboldt Baykeeper
Tell the Water Board: Clean up our Streams and Rivers!

Action Alert! Comments due April 18 at 5 pm

Using our 2005-2009 Citizen Water Monitoring data, the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board staff recently recommended six streams for listing under Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act due to bacterial pollution.

Please write a brief comment supporting the recommended listing so that this type of pollution will become a higher priority for state and local agencies.

Fecal Coliform Loads Measured in Four Arcata Creeks

At long last, a rainy February enabled us to augment our 2013 flow study with wet weather data to calculate the mass volume of fecal coliform bacteria in four Humboldt Bay tributaries (Janes, Jolly Giant, Jacoby, and Campbell Creeks).

We found that during wet weather, Janes Creek carries more than 75% of the E. coli carried by the four streams into Humboldt Bay – a whopping 375 lbs. per day!

Report A Spill Here!

Report spills to the Stormwater Pollution Hotline:

707.441.4192 or 1.877.NCSC.001 (1.877.627.2001)

Storm drains are separate from sewer systems, so stormwater flows into our coastal waterways UNTREATED. Humboldt Baykeeper is working hard to protect our environment but we can't do it alone. We need your help!

Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment of Contaminated Sites

How we will prepare for rising sea levels is just beginning to take shape here in the Humboldt Bay region. Over the past year, Humboldt Baykeeper has assessed sea level rise vulnerability for contaminated sites near Humboldt Bay. More than 300 contaminated sites are within 10 meters of current sea level, including more than 40 that are below 2 meters – the amount sea level is projected to rise by the year 2100.
