Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Plan (CMAP) Documents and Presentations
The Port of San Diego is taking actions to promote a clean bay and clean marinas.
In San Diego Bay, Shelter Island Yacht Basin has been identified as an area where high copper levels exceed federal and state standards. A regulatory order requires the Port of San Diego, marinas, yacht clubs, hull cleaners and boaters to reduce copper pollution in this area by 76 percent by 2022.
The Port of San Diego, the Cities of San Diego and Oceanside, and the County of Orange coordinate the Regional Harbor Monitoring Program (RHMP) to evaluate the long-term trends in ambient quality of water, sediment, and aquatic life in the region’s harbors. San Diego Bay, along with Mission Bay, Oceanside Harbor, and Dana Point Harbor, is one of the harbors monitored as part of this program.
