San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

Healthy Bay Project

Organization: Clean Water Fund
2001 Grant Recipient - San Francisco Bay (all counties)


The design of this grant was to identify major sources of persistent bioaccumulative toxins (PBT) in the Bay Area and to recommend technical and policy solutions for reducing these pollutants in the Bay food chain.

The project included an analysis of the controls that apply to each source and specific actions that could (and should) be taken to reduce releases. The three targets of the campaign included policy makers, pollution dischargers themselves, and consumers whose behavior can ultimately lead to releases of PBT pollutants through their use of products.

Clean Water Fund seeks to translate reduction strategies and inventory of PBTs into advocacy tools for Bay users. Project staff generated a report that to explain industrial processes, land use practices, and consumer product uses that result in PBT accumulation in the Bay. The report armed activists with concrete economic and technical facts needed to demand and win reductions in emissions and discharges that accumulate in the Bay and then harm people who eat fish from the Bay.
