Trash Skimmer Making a Difference
A vast majority of the gunk collected by the city in Queensway Bay, from the Catalina Terminal to the Shoreline Marina, comes from the Los Angeles River. Starting as far north as the San Fernando Valley, Long Beach’s waters long have been plagued by the urban runoff from cities upstream.

In the last decade though, conditions have improved. The installation of a county controlled trash boom at the mouth of the Los Angeles River means that much of the trash trickling towards Long Beach is caught and collected.

Also in use are three trash skimmer boats which easily collect 193 tons of debris from the water monthly. The debris skimmer collects mattresses and couches from the water as well as smaller debris such as sticks, plastic cups, water bottles and Styrofoam.

Environmental and Ecological Impacts of Flyboarding - There are a variety of potentially very serious environmental and ecological impacts of these water jet devices on lake ecosystems. Like a wave runner or jet ski the devices use a water jet through a nozzle to generate very high thrust. Unlike a jet ski in which the thrust is horizontal, the high thrust of these devices is directed in multiple vector directions - often a downward vector in order to propel the user into the air.
