Some curious KHUM listeners asked why water trucks were lined up at 7th and K in Arcata. PG & E's Brittany McKanney said it's because they're testing their natural gas lines.

"We're going to be filling the gas transmission lines up with water, and what that means is that we actually need to bring in the water for the test to take place. So those blue tanks are what we call 'baker tanks' and they're actually holding the water for us.

There are quite a few of them, because we will be testing the line at a much higher pressure than it would usually run."

McKanney said local governments have been notified, and that the testing will continue in our area for about a month. She asked that customers who smell natural gas call 1-800-PGE-5000.

Coastal Currents: Coastal Cleanup Day Sept. 20th

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Aug. 27 @ 11:37 a.m. / Coastal Currents

Eben ‚ÄčSchwartz, Marine Debris Program Manager for the California Coastal Commission is our guest today to talk about the upcoming Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, Sept. 20.

From the North Coast Environmental Center:

This year marks the 30th anniversary of California Coastal Cleanup Day—and for Humboldt County beach cleaner-uppers, this will be our 35th year!

Coastal Cleanup Day began as a local program of the NEC in the mid-1970s and has since grown into the largest volunteer event caring for the marine environment in California and across the world.

Not only does Coastal Cleanup Day result in tangible, immediate betterment of the environment—last year over 600 volunteers collected trash at over 40 sites resulting in over four tons of garbage being removed from North Coast waterways—but the data collected provides a profile of the most littered items, the persistence of trash and statistics useful in trying to stem the flow of garbage at its source. 

The success of Coastal Cleanup Day is owed to the participation of our many long-standing site captains and volunteers, our energetic new volunteers that join us each year and the support of our many community partners including local, national, and international businesses and organizations.

How to get involved:

 Be a site captain! Site captains are the main points of contact for the cleanup teams at each site and work with the NEC’s Cleanup Coordinator, recruiting teammates, gathering supplies, overseeing the successful cleanup of their site and reporting cleanup data back to the NEC. Check the NEC’s website for a list of available beaches and email brandon@yournec.org to sign up. 

Join a team! Be part of the group cleaning up your favorite beach. All you need to do is show up and pick up.

Sponsor Coastal Cleanup! This is a fantastic way to support local cleanup efforts and publicize your business or organization as a friend to the ocean. The NEC has a number of sponsorship packages available and all include your logo on county-wide posters and recognition at a special Ocean Night event following Coastal Cleanup Day. Email jsavage@yournec.org to find the support level right for you.

Spread the word! Passing info on to colleagues, friends, family, school teachers and civic minded groups.  The more hands we have on deck, the more impact we can make!

Ever bought El Salvadorian food from some guys in a minivan? Been accused of swimming across a lake by the Burmese junta? Or read a book that happens to be Los Bagels-centric?

If so, you have at least one thing in common with Ozomatli, who were just on Upstage Live at the Van Duzer Theater.

Video will be coming in a few weeks, but here's the interview and performance.
