    I cant believe this could happen in the capital of enviornmental nut jobs. There is more to this than meets the eye. People need to get together and let the politicians know this aint gonna fly. VOTE THEM OUT. Wait till mother earth hears about this - the whole state may slide into the ocean.

    sewage in local waters

    it's ridiculous but until citizens like Riverkeepers sue every major city to force them to upgrade their sewage treatment, this will continue. Almost every major city in the country dumps raw sewage at some point into local waters. Washington DC signed a consent decree and is digging huge underground storage tanks to hold stormwater and sewage during heavy rains so that Blue Plains doesn't dump raw sewage into the Potomac. LA and Atlanta have also signed consent decrees because of lawsuits by Riverkeepers and Natural Resources Defense Council. It seems logical that surfers should be activists on water quality issues. Okay, off my soap box.... Some really fun waves today!

    Zach, I'm glad you are frustrated and angry, because this is not a laughing matter. I hope you get a WHOLE LOT of people angry about this because it is VERY unacceptable

    See, we always do unite, and there is a local organization that always SUES san diego every time they do this, and then San Diego pays MILLIONS of dollars in penalty.... Thats the point of this article. From now on, they cannot be sued. Technically right now, they will not be breaking the law... Thats the problem. They basically legalized pollution so they cannot be privately or publicly sued... Shady business. I mean, start taxing all the tourism and stuff. There are a million other options out there, and since the wrong people are in office, these great solutions are never considered and swept under the rug because they cost money. So fu**ing wrong. And shame on DC, Atlanta and EVERYONE who has allowed these things to happen to their own cities. Shame on all of them. DC makes me a little more angry than San Diego, because if local DC citizens voice their dismay over this topic, they would have the White House listening. And if the White house has listened, and just doesn't care, shame on them too.
