Heal the Ocean is a terrific non-profit that is changing the way we treat and think about the ocean. "The ocean can no longer be used as a dump!"is their motto. Septic systems in shallow ground water along the beaches and creeks have been replaced by new sewer systems locally. In doing so Heal the Ocean has shaped policy in the State of California regarding ground water and septic systems. Heal the ocean works to help City's and County's identify contaminated ground water that needs treatment. Heal the Ocean works with sewage treatment plant operators to help them upgrade their plants and begin wastewater recycling projects so that water used in sewage treatment avoids entering the ocean and can be reused as a new resource. Since 1998, when they funded DNA studeis to test for human fecal coliform at the Rincon, Heal the Ocean has undertaken cutting edge scientific studies to identify sources of pollution. Heal the Ocean continues to help protect the health of the ocean and the life within it. Including us humans.
