Tackling Floating Trash

Tackling Floating Trash

The City’s Proactive Approach to Cleaning up the Harbor

Newport Bay is looking good and getting better! As part of its water quality improvement program, the City of Newport Beach has made a major push to reduce the trash that accumulates in the harbor.

Dr. Robert Stein, Assistant City Engineer with the City of Newport Beach Public Works Department, will provide a briefing on the progress of the City’s comprehensive effort to prevent trash and debris from entering the bay, including the construction of the Santa Ana Delhi Channel regional trash collection facility and planning for the San Diego Creek Waterwheel. Dr. Stein will provide details on how Newport Beach is teaming up with the cities of Costa Mesa and Santa Ana on a pilot project to curtail trash at the source to reduce future operation and maintenance costs.

The Baltimore Water Wheel (shown left), a trash interceptor that removes trash from the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. It is powered by both water- and solar-power and is a model for the vessel that would be used in the proposed project in San Diego Creek.

Come and ask questions, and learn more about this topic that affects everyone who uses and enjoys the harbor.
