Loading map...

The Surfrider Foundation Treasure Coast chapter serves Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.

The Treasure Coast Chapter, aided by the Florida Sportsman communications network, area fishing and diving clubs and federal agencies, won a big victory in January 2006 when they convinced the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to require St. Lucie County to replace all of the more than 200,000 cubic yards of inferior quality sand that was used to rebuild 3.7 miles of dunes after the 2004 hurricanes.

A second issue for the new chapter is the disposal of potentially contaminated sediments from the dredging of Indian River inlet that contain toxic blue-green algae, high levels of phosphorus and other sugar industry discharges.

Some previous activity by the chapter is documented at http://surfriderfoundation.blogspot.com/2006/08/treasure-coast-chapter-plants-coastal.asp
