So, the major issue where I live, on sunset cliffs in point loma, san diego, is that the city (of 3+ million people) sewage treatement plant is located with an ocean view, right on top of sunset cliffs down south of Nazarene College. So, back in the 60s and 70s when the "rain water" runoff and drainage systems were developed, there were not even a million people around here. It also never rained, so the city never prepared itself for what happens if it rains more than a few inches in the winter....
So in a nutshell, when it rains for more than an hour in the winter here, every drain pipe and river in the whole city floods. All of the grease in the streets runs off into the ocean... So, when all of this rain water gets trapped into the sewer lines, it creates an effect, where the sewage treametn plant gets debris lodged in it, and an emergency shutoff system goes off. Basically, when the system shuts off, there is a giant pipeline that feeds about 1 mile out into the pacific. The system will open the pipe and begin FREE FLOWING RAW HUMAN SEWAGE directly into the surf.... The last major time this happened a couple of years ago, there were like 100 million gallons of sewage or something RIDICULOUS like that released into the water. I had to surf La Jolla for weeks because of it... It litterally shut down the beaches all over for weeks...
So, the bottom line is this. THIS was a completely ILLEGAL action taken by the city of San Diego. The California Coastal Commission protects the ENTIRE coast over here from sewage pollution... So basically, the City executes a FELONY everytime it releases the sewage...
Last time, they got Fined $1 million dollars. THATS IT!!! A million bucks. And the city just said "Well, we dont have the money to fix it"
So the ocean has suffered...
WELL, TODAY THAT ALL ENDS!!! THe state just told San Diego, that they ABSOLUTELY MAY NOT continue running this faulty sewage plant without 1.5 BILLION in upgrades...
So eat sh** and die local governemtn scum who tried to save tax money and RUIN OUR OCEAN!!!! fu** that,..... We WON!!! WE PROTECTED THE OCEAN CHUMPS!!!!!

Thanks for continuing to educate the masses on the history and happenings in San Diego.
That's awesome, but how come this is posted in Mid-Atlantic Surf Talk? Did you post to all forums? Just curious.

LMAO. I'm going to guess on this one.
The Southern California forum gets no play. Reading his posts for the past few months he is originally from this Mid-Atlantic area.
The whole reason I post here (living in Southern California as well) is that I post on several forums during the day (I am on a computer all day for work) in between actual work and meetings, and to be blunt, this is the most entertaining "region" (Mid Atlantic) on this forum (SwellInfo)
So what about that deal with the seals? Are they still trying to shoo them away? That's another crime.

Just wondering two things(1)Do the people of Cali usually put up a fight and (2)What direction did the Terminator sway to.

Huh? You mean a fight against higher taxes? Immigration? Better highways? Better air? Better schools?
But don't F with Trestles and we wont kick yer azz.
If only we could take all that anger we had about Trestles and put it towards our school system, we could rule the world.
Regarding the Terminator... oh.. I get it.. our Govenator... damn if he isn't in one hell of a tough spot. Everybody wants money for their special interests and there is no money to give. Even with us paying some of the highest taxes in the country we are still broke as a joke.
