Preparing for Sea Level Rise in the Humboldt Bay Area
Written by Jennifer Kalt for EcoNews   

Arcata and Eureka are beginning to prepare for sea level rise, and there will be opportunities for the public to weigh in throughout 2017. Reducing emissions to slow the rate of climate change is more critical then ever, but we must also plan for sea level rise, since the Humboldt Bay area is experiencing sea level rise at twice the rate of the rest of the state due to tectonic subsidence.


Upcoming opportunities to get involved:

New Headquarters at 415 I Street in Arcata!

On December 1, the Northcoast Environmental Center, Humboldt Baykeeper and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics (CATs) will have new headquarters in the Cooper Building at 415 I Street in Arcata. This new location will be more accessible and visible for volunteers, interns, and interested community members. 

 

"We are excited to launch this new chapter in a better position to engage the community in what will certainly be challenging times for environmental advocacy," said Jennifer Kalt, Director of Humboldt Baykeeper.

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.”

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.

Safety Tips for Cleaning & Cooking Dungeness Crab

This year's Dungeness crab season is finally under way! With last year's unsafe domoic acid levels, health department officials continue to recommend not eating the internal organs (known as crab butter) which concentrated toxins. Humboldt Baykeeper has long recommended this as well as killing and cleaning crabs before cooking to reduce dioxin exposure.

Report A Spill Here!

For spills in Humboldt Bay:

  • Cailfornia Office of Emergency Services (800) 852-7550

For spills in or near storm drains (which drain to creeks and Humboldt Bay)

  • Eureka Public Works Dept. (707) 441-4192
  • 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!

Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Inundation Mapping

Inundation maps were developed by Jeff Anderson of Northern Hydrology & Engineering for the Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment Project. The maps show areas vulnerable to existing and future sea levels that are currently protected from inundation due to the natural shoreline, dikes or berms, and railroad or road grades.
