In a city as big as Los Angeles, you can depend on many government agencies charged with the task of cleaning up the environment. In fact, there is a different agency for each segment of our environment. Case in point: the California Regional Water Quality Control Board. These are the folks charged with the responsibility of keeping our waterways sparkling. Recently, this agency turned it sights on Marina del Rey Harbor and more specifically, boat paint. Apparently, the copper-based paint used by most boat owners has been causing harm to the fish population of the Marina. The small fish are exposed to the toxins and the bigger fish eat them. That’s not good for anyone. The plans on the table to clean up the Marina include dredging the entire harbor and banning paint with copper. Of course, the boats with preexisting bad paint jobs would have to be repainted. Simply put, this is going to be a very expensive and time-consuming cleanup.
