Long Beach Supports Water Quality Programme


The Long Beach Board of Harbour Commissioners has awarded USD $3 million to four environmental projects, which will help to improve water quality in the Long Beach port area.

The investment comes as part of the Port Community Grants Program, a decade-long, $46.4 million initiative to lessen the environmental impact of goods movement.

Combined with $18.2 million given during a previous programme, Long Beach has now committed $65 million to improve the health of children, seniors and other vulnerable populations who live near the port.

The Port Community Grants Program identifies three key areas of funding: community health, facility improvements and community infrastructure.

Tracy Egoscue, Commission President, said: “As stewards of the Port, the Board of Harbour Commissioners is dedicated to environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

“The Port Community Grants Program is a prime example of this commitment.”

A further statement from the Port read: “The Port of Long Beach has been taking aggressive action to manage stormwater and improve water quality in San Pedro Bay.

“The Port’s Water Resources Action Plan, which addresses the various sources of water pollution affecting the harbour, has resulted in continual improvements in the marine habitat and water quality.”
