San Mateo County Resource Conservation District provided an update presentation to the Harbor Commission 6/21/2017 on their continuing investigation of sources of fecal bacteria from warm-blooded animals in Pillar Point Harbor, particularly at Capistrano Beach.  Past studies have shown that the pollution enters the harbor from watershed drainage (creek and storm drain outlets) rather than from boats.  The current investigation is focused on the upland areas that drain to Capistrano Beach: Denniston watershed, St. Augustine watershed, and Capistrano drainage.
