BALDWIN Maritime Editor Stiffer fines and penalties for polluters of Long Beach's tidal waters were advocated Tuesday by a city representative appearing before a joint federal- state hearing in Los Angeles. The city also urged itate boards concerned with protecting quality of estuarine waters be given more legai muscle. Long Beach's position was stated in a policy paper presented by L. G. Estes, director of Environmental Health, before members of the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration and the California State Water Resources Control Board. The federal and state agencies met to accept testimony concerning the importance of estuaries (tidal waters, the shore and adjacent land) to the economic and social well- being of the people of the U.S. The two agencies expressed interest in receiving comments and opinions as to the effect of pollution on California's estuarine waters. Estes urged primary consideration be given to both the increase in volume and quality of waste-water discharges which would have a degrading effect upon Jocal receiving waters. "It is recognized certain harbors and estuaries must be dedicated to shipping," Estes said, but these activities should not be allowed to adversely affect water quality, the esthetics or recreational uses of adjacent estuarine waters. "To date, more than $70 million has been expended in developing the shoreline complex which Includes the modern Long Beach Marina and its associated water recreaiiomil sports area," he. said. The hearing was called to gather material for a report ordered by Congress to be tendered by the Department of Interior.
