Water documentary at Pacific Beach Library

The University of Arizona's Water Resources Research Center director, Dr. Sharon B. Megdal, Ph.D, will be presenting a viewing of “Beyond the Mirage: The Future of Water in the West” at the Pacific Beach Library 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1.

“Beyond the Mirage” explores the West's water situation in detail, including how the region arrived at this point. Through interviews with noted public policy and environmental experts, the documentary puts viewers at the center of this issue and prompts candid discussion about water resources and the need for viable, sustainable solutions.

The screening of the film will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

More trash bins for beaches in summer

San Diego beaches and bays are filled with local and out of town visitors this summer enjoying the beautiful views and perfect weather. Unfortunately, permanent trash receptacles are inundated with large amounts of litter due to this influx of beachgoers. Throughout the summer season holidays, the San Diego Clean Beach Coalition will place 200 temporary trash and recycling bins along San Diego’s most heavily-trafficked beaches: Mission Beach, Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, and Ocean Beach to alleviate overflowing receptacles and reduce marine debris.

Not only is marine debris an eyesore, it also poses a serious health threat to local wildlife and negatively impacts water quality. Since the SDCBC’s inception in 2007, these temporary bins have collected an impressive 3.3 million pounds of trash which is the equivalent of three Boeing 747 airplanes. The SDCBC bins make proper disposal the easy and convenient choice while everyone enjoys their time seaside.
