New Dioxin Data: Good News, Bad News

Since Baykeeper’s 2006 success in getting Humboldt Bay designated as impaired by dioxin, sampling for this long-lasting contaminant has become common for dredging, restoration, and development projects. One recent study has revealed a major dioxin hotspot in Humboldt Bay near the Arcata Marsh. The good news is that ongoing monitoring at a former lumber mill in Eureka has shown that the cleanup brought by Baykeeper’s legal action has been effective.

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
