August meeting of the Mayor's Workgroup on Water Quality went well. Group is collaborating with Newport City Council on public education campaign on local water quality issues. This includes a 1pg insert on stormwater written by Newport Chapter that will go out in the city's monthly water bill. Still openings for more Newport Chapter volunteers to participate! Next month's mtg on Sept 25th, 4pm Newport City Hall will include Surfrider presentation on options for addressing land-based pollution in the community.
