Rick Merrifield has joined the advisory board of Heal the Ocean. Mr. Merrifield is former director of Santa Barbara County?s Environmental Health Services and will, in part, act as a consultant on septic system issues. During his time with Environmental Health Services, he worked with the nonprofit on septic pollution problems, including the South Coast Beach Communities Septic to Sewer Project. “Most notably, Rick came to our rescue as we muddled through with Heal the Bay, Santa Monica, the difficult process of working with State Water Resources Control Board staff in crafting language for AB 885 ? septic system regulations for the State of California. His input was a major contributor to the adoption of AB 885 regulations in June 2012,” according to Heal the Ocean in a statement.
