Surfrider Humboldt Chapter speaks out

Several cautioned the commissioners about the potential for environmental damage – including a Surfrider Foundation representative who noted that ships would likely dump unknown and undesirable materials into the bay and nearby ocean.”

From the Times-Standard‘s recent story about the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District‘s approval of the Redwood Marine Terminal Business Plan.

(That Surfrider rep would be our own Volunteer Coordinator Kalei Coleridge.)

Chris Rall of Green Wheels has a report on the meeting here.
