Heal the Bay is a regional environmental nonprofit organization dedicated to making Santa Monica Bay and Southern California coastal waters safe and healthy for people and marine life. Progress toward the mission is achieved by effectively combining the use of science, advocacy, community outreach, and public education to create positive change in our local environment.
The Water Resources Policy Analyst is responsible for water quality and water resources-related technical and policy projects for the organization. This consists of critically evaluating water quality permits, stormwater programs and pollution controls, wastewater issues, Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) and other water quality and water resources-related policies and regulations from both a scientific and policy perspective. The Analyst will represent Heal the Bay at public meetings and stakeholder groups and advocate for strong water quality and water resources-related policies and regulations.
Heal the Bay will orient team members on fish identification; fishing regulations and health advisories for Southern California; and the contamination history of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is a great opportunity for college level students or concerned members of the community to get involved and make a difference.
The Angler Outreach Team Member will educate the shoreline angling community and general public on fishing health risks associated with consuming fish caught in LA and Orange County. The principal method of outreach will be interviewing anglers. In addition to interviewing anglers, outreach members will disseminate appropriate literature (health advisories, fish catch limits, etc.) to the all public contacts. The outreach program will be conducted at local piers.
