Save the EPA – Protect Public Health & Clean Water!

As a grassroots organization fighting for the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves and beaches, the Surfrider Foundation relies on EPA programs and regulations to ensure that the water that flows down to the beach is clean and free from pollution, and that beachgoers have the information they need to avoid getting sick at the beach. EPA regulations and the research the agency supports are also critical as our country and planet face the challenges of climate change, and coastal communities deal with changing weather patterns and rising sea levels. Please join us to save the EPA’s ability to meet it’s mission of protecting public health and clean water! Learn more.
