During 2019-17, workers evaluated variety of potential techniques for up water quality conditions before this stream reaches the ocean. Goals square measure lowering toxins from two purpose sources areas exploitation fungi as a methods used in riparian restoration projects that are successful in removing dangerous pathogens and toxins before this reaches the Ocean. Planting native shrubs and trees can refund to birds and different life species giving nesting habit and lowering water stream temperatures for fish.
The bioswale is planted with native plants, and designed to slow and naturally treat storm water and concrete runoff or point source runoff locations and filtered, before it reaches the confluence of the Pacific Ocean. By fastness the water down, pollutants square measure allowed to soak into the bottom to be de-escalated by microbes within the soil, flora strategies, air, native plants, and daylight.
Naturally this space while not the urban population and streets within the combine once was five hundred feet wide. nowadays with restoration comes happening in 2008 the stream space is around fifty feet wide, not giving what once history revels the filtering method was abundant larger exploitation five hundred feet of space to assist filter runoff.
Santa Barbara Channel Whale Collision Risk
Documented since 2011, a few endangered species of whales like the Blue, Fin, and Humpback started to feed in a new area north of Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa islands of the Santa Barbara Channel. The Arroyo Burro creek is important factor to clean water for many marine species like whales and salmon habitat. Ocean Blue would like to lower erosion and lower water temperatures for this stream section feeding into the Santa Barbara Channel. The whales area at risk not only to be struck by passing ships using this high traffic shipping lane used to move goods south to Los Angeles and Long Beach ports. Around 100 collisions have been documented off the coast of California since 1982, which is about the rate of 6 per year today on average.
