BENEFITS OF DONATING

When you give to Heal the Ocean, you can be assured your contribution directly helps to reduce pollution sources to the ocean, namely by upgrading wastewater infrastructure and septic-to-sewer projects. We urgently need your help to support additional:

  • Engineering Studies - Consulting engineers are instrumental in helping us gauge costs of septic-to-sewer projects, and other clean-water projects which is necessary for State grant funding;
  • Outside Contract Help on Projects - HTO adds paid manpower to local, regional and State projects initiated by us, to move projects forward, i.e., a groundwater management plan for the City of Santa Barbara, conducted with Regional Water Quality Control Board staff;
  • Legal Counsel - Before we take action on suggested changes to local, regional or State policy affecting water resources and ocean protection, we consult with expert legal counsel.
