Environmental Advisory Committee

The Port’s Environmental Advisory Committee advises the Board on programs, policies, and projects that ensure the protection and improvement of the natural resources of San Diego Bay and the surrounding tidelands. The EAC is composed of a member of the Board of Port Commissioners and representatives from a variety of stakeholder groups selected by the Board. Members include Port tenants, environmental advocacy groups, non-profit organizations, the U.S. Navy, regulatory and resource agencies, member cities, academia, local business, and labor. This diverse membership provides input from a broad and balanced cross-section of the community. EAC meetings intend to encourage input from stakeholders and interaction with Port staff and Board members.

We thank our committee members for all their hard work and dedication to the EAC.
