A close look at the Great Pacific Garbage Patch reveals a common culprit
For decades, our oceans have been filling up with trash. The North Pacific Garbage Patch, also called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, has accumulated approximately 80,000 tons of plastic waste—and that estimate continues to climb.

A recent study published in Scientific Reports has identified one important source of the trash: the fishing industry. » Read More
For his water plan to work, Newsom must marshal all key forces

What People Are Saying
HDPE has had a significant impact on our capital improvement program. We have been able to pipe burst our existing AC pipe with HDPE. It has really allowed us to implement more miles for a lower cost.
