Toxic Barge

Between storms I was out surfing yesterday in Imperial Beach. Luckily it had not rained much on Wednesday, so the water was crystal clear, there were only a few of us out, and the waves were fun.

While I was in the water, the toxic barge arrived with a load of sediment dredged up from San Diego Bay laced with heavy metals and PCBs to be dumped just offshore.
