Socioeconomic Study

Surfrider is partnering with Oregon State University on a project to assess socioeconomic issues associated with establishing Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in Oregon. The project will identify effective strategies to address and minimize impacts on Oregon’s coastal communities from protecting ecologically important ocean habitats. The investigation will include interviews with fishermen and elected officials to identify their values, concerns, and recommendations. The final product will be a roadmap for the state to effectively address social and economic factors in MPA planning, including guidelines for: a) socioeconomic assessments, b) public and stakeholder input, c) integrating ecological and socioeconomic criteria, d) potential mitigation and/or compensation.

Indian Beach Clean Up Sat. 10/21

Saturday, Oct. 21st, noon at Indian Beach, Surfrider Foundation volunteers will be cleaning the beach by picking up trash. These short events are always a lot of fun and do a lot of good to bring our beaches back to the way they’re supposed to be. Just swing by the Surfrider table in the parking lot and get yourself a bag. Cannon Beach Surf Shop has invited clean up volunteers to the porch for a social event starting about 3:00PM. Hope to see you in the water, beach and porch.

DEQ Accepts Petition!

DEQ and they has accepted the Petition for Reconsideration. (See below article on this page for more information on the petition.) The time frame for the reconsideration is not determined at this time. DEQ will consider the points we have raised in the Petition, modify the terms of the permit if they deem necessary and then issue the permit for a public review and comment process. In the interim, GP will be required to operate under the terms of the new permit because DEQ feels that the new permit has stronger requirements that address some of the public concerns regarding the permit. This is a huge victory for Surfrider Foundation volunteers, local water and beach users and the environment. A big thanks to everyone who worked so hard on this.

Wave Energy

In recent months, two wave energy projects have been proposed off the Oregon coast. New Jersey-based Ocean Power Technologies filed a pre-application permit in July with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a commercial wave project in Reedsport. Under the proposal, electricity would be generated from buoys in a wave park about 2.5 miles off the coast and anchored in water about 165 feet deep. More recently, Lincoln County filed an application with FERC for a wave energy project that would be a partnership between public and private entities. According to Lincoln County reps, the project has the long-term potential to meet the entire county’s energy needs. Surfrider is working to gather information on potential benefits and costs, as well as provide opportunities for local members to particpate in these upcoming federal permitting processes.
