Kudos to Hillary Hauser and Santa Barbara’s Heal the Ocean for their big win on pollution at Rincon. After a decade-long fight for clean water at the world famous Rincon surf spot, Heal the Ocean and a small group of beach homeowners entered into an agreement on replacing septics with a sewer system.

The decade-long fight included everything from elections to assessments to litigation, all in the name of keeping human sewage out of the sea. Rincon has been known to get a lot of poor grades on our Beach Report Card and this win should make an “F” at Rincon ancient history.

It is great to see a good friend and partner organization get such a critical signature win. Congrats to all.
