Of the seven wave energy development proposals on the Oregon coast, the Reedsport project is farthest along. Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) is hoping to secure necessary permits to install 14 buoys about 2.5 miles off the coast of Gardiner within the next year or so. Ultimately, OPT hopes to expand to an array of 200 buoys. Surfrider has a formal seat in the state sponsored settlement process that is helping guide how the federal permitting process moves forward. Our priorities include addressing: environmental impacts, conflicts with ocean recreation, public safety, and aesthetics. Recently, Surfrider submitted written arguments for stronger research and monitoring for electromagnetic fields (EMF) that would be produced by project. OPT has already agreed to conduct some field monitoring based on this memo, and discussions are ongoing to determine what field research might be conducted. To read the memo, see first comment to this post. Thanks to Kristen and Stiv for all their support on this!

Please participate in the action alert below to let your federal representatives know you support enhanced water quality monitoring for ocean beaches. The BEACH Protection Act of 2007 would increase federal funding support for water quality testing and require the EPA to adopt rapid analysis methods to provide water quality data within hours of sampling. The Act would also promote actions to identify and clean up sources of pollution. In Oregon, the Act would directly support the Oregon Beach Monitoring Program, which is administered by the Department of Human Services and Dept of Environmental Quality. The program monitors beaches from Astoria to Brookings for fecal bacteria, and reports elevated levels to the public. Please let Congress know that you support the Act. After all, it’s your beach!

Consensus Statement: Oregon’s Ocean

Oregon Surfrider recently partnered with a number of fishing groups, scientists, and environmental organizations to develop a consensus statement on Oregons ocean. The statement addresses the current health of Oregons marine ecosystem, as well as the role of management tools such as marine protected areas (MPAs) and marine reserves. The effort represents an important collaboration between a range of different stakeholder groups and demonstrates promise that diverse interests in Oregon can work together on issues like marine reserve planning, wave energy development, and watershed stewardship. Signers to the statement include: Portland Audubon, Northwest Steelheaders, Oceana, Five Star Charters, Port Orford Ocean Resource Team, Berkley Conservation Institute, NW Guides and Anglers, Pacific Marine Conservation Council, Northwest Sportfishing Industry Association, and others To read the full statement see first comment to this post.
