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!!!!!
