How are cities near the ocean trying to control runoff?



  1. 0 Votes

    In 1990, the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments (CZARA) was passed, requiring coastal states and territories to create runoff-control projects. Construction sites and storm water systems of certain sizes must comply with CZARA standards.

    Some preventative actions that CZARA – as well as the EPA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which oversee CZARA – recommend that ocean-bordering cities do to protect the marine environment are:

    *Set up toxic material disposal plans

    *Plan road and bridge construction so that they don’t cross many waterways and therefore disturb aquatic flora and fauna or black natural drainage pathways.

    *Enact protection laws for sensitive coastal areas

    *Put into place road cleanup crews
