Plastic Debris Rivers to Sea Project

Posted on 22 March 2011 by Anonymous

The Plastic Debris, Rivers to Sea Project is assessing and reducing sources of plastics and trash in urban runoff.

The State Water Resources Control Board, through a Proposition 13 grant, provides the majority of the funding for the Project. The Algalita Marine Research Foundation is implementing the project with the support and assistance of the California Coastal Commission. The primary goal of the project is to reduce the land-based discharges via urban runoff of plastics and other discarded materials that degrade water quality and impair beneficial uses of inland and coastal waters.
