King Tides help us understand what can happen to our coastal communities as sea levels rise. Folks from all over the world are participating, taking and sharing photos with the Project – the goal, to share photos with people all over the world about the affects of King Tides, and to draw attention to the effects of climate change. This year the project takes place during three sets of extreme tides: Oct. 27-29, Nov. 24-27, and Dec. 23-25. YOU can get involved!
Fecal bacteria in ocean waters indicate that other disease-causing organisms may be present. The Oregon Beach Monitoring Program (OBMP) – which issues beach advisories – will be adopting new bacteria levels for their water testing. These new standards may sound good, but there are concerns that some states may have to cut back on water sampling and/or eliminate some of the beaches which currently are being monitored.
PUBLIC MEETING: October 20, Marshfield High School (Heritage Hall), S. 10th and Ingersoll St., Coos Bay, 6-9 pm.
