For those of you that sailed Leo this week - Are your shots up to date Question

Saw the other day that Leo had a D rating on water quality, unlike its usual A rating.
I didn't question it too much. Probably should have Mad

Below is a blurb that I just noticed on Surfline under the Local News section.
"Sewage spill at Leo Carrillo. Last week, several reports indicated that a pipe under the bridge was pouring raw, untreated pooh from the beach bathrooms... Surf at your own risk." Shocked Shocked Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I guess it's too much to ask the Lifeguards or State Park rangers to post a warning sign.
No use cry'n over spilt sewage.

Mitch

Thanks for mentioning one of the many sewage spills recently. Isn't there a requirement that our rivers and beaches be tested occasionally? Isn't there a requirement that a warning be issued by posting at the shoreline when it becomes known that the water quality endangers our health? Could iWindsurf be used to quickly broadcast a warning signal when water quality is determined to be dangerous at a particular location? Will windsurfing and kiting association leaders take up this issue with the local water quality authorities and park managers and let them know some good ways to warn us? We can't be apathetic about water polution. When you hear that going into the water is dangerous, please post it on this forum as soon as possible. Use a short subject heading that gives a concise alert about the location.

I knew that the big kelp bloom of '08 was triggered by some man-made event(?). It's bad enough that someone's been watering the seaweed, but adding fertilizer must be stopped!

Yesterday, (Sunday), I sailed Broadbeach. (I wasn't feeling well enough to handle County line on 65% lung capacity due to remnants of the flu), and also wasn't in the mood for Leo. Broadbeach was surprisingly nice........sandy bottom, clean water. Did I mention SANDY BOTTOM? I mean, how nice is that these days? Zuma near the Trancas market drain isn't clean, but upwind at Broadbeach it's fine.

It was a little scary being out there all alone, and honestly, I did keep passing these big things.....dark things, offwhite things....beneath me, as I was looking down in the beatiful turquoise/dark blue water..... I was conservative with my turns, let's just put it that way......no time to be learning any new tricks......But it's such a beautiful place to sail....

And now Trancas:

3/19/08 1:07 PM - Trancas Beach Malibu [in front of Trancas Creek]
100 yards on both sides from the point of discharge to the ocean. Post signs at creek, 50 yards, and 100 yards on both sides of the point of discharge to the ocean. Mad


Sharks or Poo, take your pick.

JP - As long as the creeks are flowing this time of year, I think they keep these postings up as a precautionary measure. Leo is now rated a "C", upgraded from it's "D" rating. At least it's heading in the right direction.

On Monday I checked out the area under the bridge and only saw a temporary plastic pipe running along the side the creek with sandbags on it. Looked pretty secure. Not sure of it's origin or where it's going. The creek was flowing into the ocean. I talked to two park rangers that were nearby and they said they didn't know of any sewage spill. I suspect the surfline report was bogus. Probably similar to that suspect warning sign that was found near the stairs last year that Dara posted and that occasional shark sighting that's posted. For those of you that want to believe in conspiracies, then perhaps there was a spill but the park rangers covered it up to avoid an expensive fine by the EPA. Discharges into the ocean probably carry a huge fine.
