Georgia Pacific Pulp Mill Campaign: Past, Present, Future

On Monday night, Oregon State University’s Dr. Sarah Henkel presented findings on the City of Newport commissioned Ocean Bioaccumulation Survey of the Georgia Pacific Pulp Mill discharge. The survey report may have finally put to rest some long unanswered questions about the discharge’s impact on the nearshore environment, where an average of 10-11 million gallons of the mill’s wastewater is dumped daily within Newport’s Nye Beach area. While the report may represent the final chapter in many years of work to improve the ocean outfall monitoring and eliminate certain wastestreams from the effluent, it also raises a few questions with respect to larger everyday and historical run-off and non-point sources of Newport and the surrounding area.

3 Boats and a Goat – Marine Debris up on the Oregon Coast

It was a busy weekend for beach ranger staff and volunteers along the Oregon Coast as yet another wave of marine debris flushed in along our shores, littering beaches with everything from common household items, floats and water bottles to larger debris such as derelict boats and skiffs. The uptick in debris was first noted a couple of weeks ago, when droves of floats and smaller items began washing ashore, particularly along the more remote stretches of coastline. This weekend 3 boats washed ashore, 2 in the Tillamook area and another near Waldport in Bayshore. Of the more interesting beach reports this weekend was that of CoastWatch Program mile adopter Ed Rossiter, who reported goats (actually they are sheep) on the south coast!
