EPA, Beach Water Quality Act, Public Health, Ocean

Today’s Los Angeles Times features an Op-Ed by Mark Gold, Heal the Bay’s former president, about his disappointment with new EPA beach water quality criteria that actually weaken public health protections for millions of recreational ocean users.

Read more of Gold’s thoughts and please urge the EPA to amend these ill-conceived regulatory revisions.
