Over the past 8 years, we've accomplished some incredible coastal victories and preserved many pristine coastal areas. However, Scott Pruitt, who has openly tried to undermine the agency’s efforts to do its job to protect clean air and water — is poised to take the helm of the EPA. Both environmental protections and public health will be at risk, not to mention our efforts to protect our...

Rising sea levels and more powerful storms are shrinking our beaches and diminishing access to these majestic places.

The ocean gives us so much but it needs your help to stay healhy and thriving!
As a grassroots organization fighting for the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves and beaches, the Surfrider Foundation leans heavily 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.

U.S. Senate: _Senators of the 115th Congress
Although the rain that has fallen this winter has certainly been appreciated in California where drought conditions the past few years have caused major concerns over the sustainability of the state's freshwater resources, it has not come without new problems of its own. Unfortunately, much of that precious rain that falls doesn’t sink into the ground to re-hydrate the watershed and...

The EPA provides billions of dollars every year to fund programs aimed at understanding and solving current environmental problems. The recent 'freeze' placed on all grants and contracts run by the EPA means that no money will be going out to contractors, states, universities and tribes that receive federal assistance to run a wide array of research, environmental and public health protection...
