Everyaction,

The Central Coast of California is often called "America's Salad Bowl" because of the abundance of farming throughout the region. It's a point of pride, but current agricultural practices are leading to a serious problem: dangerous levels of fertilizer runoff and pesticides that can harm drinking water and endangered species like steelhead trout and red-legged frogs.

State regulators are poised to take an important step to rein in some of the region's worst pollution from farm-water runoff.

Tell state officials to strengthen the Central Coast's water-quality requirements as much as possible.

The Central Coast Water Board is seeking public comments on new limits and numeric standards for fertilizer and pesticide pollution. But it needs to hear from you that these rules must be strengthened.
 
Take action now to defend water quality on the Central Coast, so the region can continue to offer healthy, sustainable produce and better protect our environment.
