Cyanobacteria - Cyanobacteria are aquatic bacteria, and are some of the oldest living organelles on Earth. Because these water-dwelling bacteria photosynthesize, they are also referred to as “blue-green algae.” Cyanobacteria can be found in many different environments, including freshwater and marine ecosystems. Despite being named “blue-green algae,” blooms may appear in many different colors including red, yellow, brown, blue, and green, and often form a scum on the water’s surface.

Today's Coastal Factoid

California Legislation Would Allow Direct Potable Reuse
"Assembly Bill 574 (Quirk-Hayward) will create a four-year plan to make California the first state in the nation with comprehensive, statewide direct potable reuse regulations. If enacted, communities will be empowered to consider direct potable reuse as part of their water supply portfolio. AB 574 will lead to a race to the top to determine which California community will be the first pioneer to achieve direct potable reuse." - excerpt from Op-Ed by Sean Bothwell in Water Deeply.

State of the Beach

2010-Coastal-States.gif

The Surfrider Foundation State of the Beach report is our continually-updated assessment of the health of our nation’s beaches. It is intended to empower concerned citizens and coastal managers by giving them the information needed to take action. For over ten years we have been collecting information on beach access, surf zone water quality, beach erosion, beach fill, shoreline structures, beach ecology and surfing areas to get an understanding of the condition of our nation’s beaches and the effectiveness of programs and policies designed to protect them.
