Reduce lead contamination at Puʻuloa Beach
The Oahu Chapter, along with community groups and beach users, committed a series of sediment sampling near and along Puʻuloa Range Training Facility (PRTF) in ʻEwa Beach. The results show lead concentrations of up to 14,000 mg/kg - over 17 times the accepted public health levels for industrial areas and 70 times the accepted level for residential areas. Surfrider is demanding the navy prioritize protecting & cleaning this significant area.
