Citizen Scientists Look for Sources of Bacteria Pollution
Written by Jennifer Kalt for EcoNews   

 

Since 2005, our Citizen Water Monitoring Program has sampled streams from Little River to Elk River. In 2015, the U.S. EPA designated six creeks as “impaired” by bacteria based on our data. Since then, we have been working with the Regional Water Board and Humboldt County Public Health Lab to identify source animals (humans, cattle, dogs, birds, and other wildlife). After four sampling events in 2016, we are waiting for the results of the genetic analysis, which Humboldt County Public Health Lab is perfecting.

Keeper of the Bay: “An Individual can make a difference”
Written by Will Houston, Times-Standard   

Humboldt Baykeeper’s Jen Kalt is one of nine women featured in the Times-Standard's Monday Magazine, a new publication celebrating local women in business. 

 

Kalt says that the lack of enforcement of many environmental laws in Humboldt County is “severe” and criticized decision makers who she said have “enabled” businesses to operate outside of those laws.

 

“I think that’s an injustice to the people who believe in running their business in ways that follow the laws and protect the environment and community,” she said.

 

“Industries come and go, but the bay and rivers, if we destroy them, they’re gone forever.”

  • Arcata Environmental Services Dept. (707) 822-8184
  • Humboldt County Public Works Dept. (707) 445-7491

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!

After the film, we will host a panel discussion with several local fishermen and oyster growers from the Humboldt Bay region. Fishermen will discuss the unique joys and challenges of fishing in Humboldt Bay and will discuss how we as a community can support the production of local, sustainable seafood.
