Bad News for Fourth of July, Good for the Ocean!

Summer’s on the brink of arrival and everyone is getting ready for summer barbeques, beach days, and of course, those days at amusement parks and Fourth of July parties ending with a spectacular fireworks show.  San Diego County, however, is in for a bit of a change.  

This month, the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board enacted the very first rules in the nation concerning fireworks displays over coastal areas.  The rule states that fireworks shows from Laguna Beach to the Mexican Border will have to pay a to $1,500 to display fireworks over the ocean.  The rule will also affect smaller bodies of water such as rivers, streams, and reservoirs.

Firework shows can spread pollution into the water, usually metal and other contaminants.  Along with that, it will degrade the quality of the water and sediment, affecting the biological factors of the water (animals, plants, etc).
