Fix Our Harbors

San Mateo County Harbor District

The Half Moon Bay fishing, boating and surfing community would like facilities modernized at Pillar Point Harbor. It's time to fix crumbling infurtructure, chronic water pollution, dangerous working conditions on Johnson Pier, unsafe docks, inadequate public restrooms, outdated visitor serving facilities, poor wifi connectivity and compromised trail access.

Improve Water Quality

It is unconscionable that General Manager Peter Grenell and Harbormaster Scott Grindy hid the leaky sewage pipe after is was first reported in 2012.  Each time another leak occurred, raw sewage spilled into the harbor before the pipe could be patched. Grenell and Grindy ordered Harbor Patrol staff to repeatedly patch the pipe for over a year before doing a proper repair.  

Read the outrageous Johnson Pier sewage leak coverup emails. Checkout the Half Moon Bay Review article, "Harbor plans sewer fixes following failure: Leaked emails discuss pipe breach."

A pump out program with BayGreen was finally approved in May 2014 after year of public pressure to improve water quality at Pillar Point Harbor.

Clean Marinas certification is greenwashing, the program needs significant improvements
