About the Cleanup Effort
In March 2012, the San Diego Regional Water Control Board (Water Board) issued a clean-up and abatement order (CAO No. R9-2012-0024) for San Diego Bay waters adjacent to the local shipyards in Barrio Logan (A list of parties involved can be found within CAO No. R9-2012-0024). Starting September 2013, the San Diego Bay Environmental Restoration Trust will begin a three year construction project removing sediment from the area and improving the quality of San Diego Bay. Regarding the south site, some of the responsible parties have committed to funding its share of future remediation costs, while others have refused to provide the necessary funding. Until all of the named dischargers in the south site commit to implementing the cleanup, it may not proceed on schedule.
The San Diego Bay Environmental Restoration Trust will remove sediment from the Bay floor that will help improve the quality of the Bay. In recognition of the foraging habits of the California Least Tern bird, dredging is primarily focused between the months of September and March.
This website will provide up-to-date alerts on the project, current status and upcoming activities. Additionally, this website will serve as a repository for project documents and will be another resource for the public to find current information and to submit comments and requests.
