The Rip Curl Planet Foundation Contributes to BWTF Rincon!
As part of a legacy project left in the wake of the Rip Curl Pro "Somewhere in Puerto Rico" event, the Rip Curl Planet Foundation contributed a small grant in the amount of $2,000 to help expand and maintain Surfrider Foundation Rincon's water quality monitoring program. The grant will be spent by obtaining another shipment of supplies to expand our monitoring sites near the three major outfalls we are assessing: Sardineras outfall in Isabela, Rio Culebrinas in Aguada, and Rio Grande del Calvache in Rincon.
Our Blue Water Task Force water quality monitoring program is a part of our greater pursuit of watershed protection, management and restoration along the Northwest Coast of Puerto Rico. Our chapter would like to thank the Rip Curl Planet Foundation for helping our chapter continue to pursue this goal.
