Water Quality Program

The continued protection of our ocean and harbor is a wide-reaching environmental concern the City has focused considerable time and funding to seriously address. The creation of a Recommendations Report by the Water Quality Task Force led to a Water Quality Matrix detailing a specific plan of action for addressing water quality issues.  Dedicated community volunteers created a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation (one of the funding ideas generated from the Water Quality Task Force recommendations report).  Also found below is a link to the Clean Waterfront Redondo web page, where even more community information and action regarding water quality education can be found.  These pages were created to keep you informed on current happenings in the City as we strive to be a model for water quality programs and information throughout the region.

Red Tide:

Through the efforts of the Water Quality Task Force, the City has been able to make connections with local scientific and academic communities that were previously unimagined. An alliance with scientists from the University of Southern California, spearheaded by USC Environmental Studies Professor Dr. David Caron, established a pilot buoy program that provides cutting-edge red tide monitoring of harbor waters. The research data provided by this innovation collaboration will enable the City to better prepare and deal with the red tide phenomena.
