Stopping Polluters

Baykeeper defends the Bay and holds polluters accountable

The health of San Francisco Bay and the people who live near it is constantly threatened by polluting activities. All around the Bay, polluters dump toxic metals, oil and coal, industrial chemicals, trash, and raw sewage into the water.

Baykeeper holds polluters accountable by enforcing the Clean Water Act and other laws that protect the Bay and its people. We require polluters to comply with the law, and we make sure they fix their pollution problems to stop harming the Bay.
