One of the best ways to do that is support enviro groups and voting for candidates with strong environmental track records.
Rick Wilson, Surfrider's Coastal Management Coordinator adds something rather disturbing: I will mention something regarding another class of pollutants that affect the ocean through our sewer systems -- pharmaceuticals (drugs).
But what happens after 72 hours to all that crap that comes with the run-off? What about the heavy metals, oil, pesticides, toxins, etc?
Isn't all this stuff just accumulating on the sea floor?

That includes everything from aspirin and Advil to birth control pills, blood pressure medication, Viagra, heartburn medication, etc.
We're all taking this stuff and then peeing it out. Down the toilet, through the sewers to a treatment plant to remove solids and most of the bacteria, but not drugs. So we're "medicating" all the critters that live in the ocean, which has already been shown to affect the sex and reproduction of fish, frogs, etc in more enclosed water bodies like rivers.Three days is a general rule of thumb, not a hard and fast rule. The other elements of the "toxic cocktail" -- toxics, heavy metals, etc. Yes, the ocean is getting more polluted as we urbanize the coast.We know almost nothing about viruses in the water and they are far more of a threat to health than bacteria. We are paving all the natural filters and cementing our rivers to create a system that sends all this nasty stuff to our ocean as fast as possible. We all hope not, but we think think every single surfer should stand up for a zero tolerance on beach advisories.I really like that ' Work From Home.' Wait, WHAT????" (Yeah, that's not about a cute couple that makes adorable "Crows Before Hoes" knock-off t-shirts.) It's dirty -- super, super dirty.Isn't the ocean just getting increasingly polluted? Chad Nelsen, environmental director for the Surfrider Foundation chimes in: All of the monitoring at the beach in California and almost everywhere else is done for beach advisories is based on bacteria.
