A group of environmental activists waging a campaign to clean San Diego Bay released a 10-point strategy plan Friday that would hold polluters in check, including a call for environmental protection agencies to be more vigilant. "Blueprint for a Clean Bay," by the Environmental Health Coalition, is the first step toward a comprehensive management program that would make the bay more suitable for swimming and fishing, the coalition said.

The results of the county's Health Risk Study on consumption of fish from San Diego Bay have prompted enough concern to increase the posting of warning signs about consuming fish caught in the bay. The San Diego Unified Port District's very own Toxic Contaminant Cleanup subcommittee recognizes the need for an ongoing, bay-wide monitoring program. A baseline monitoring study would benefit San Diego long into the future. The results would be used to design programs to prevent further contamination of the bay and to clean up existing hot spots.

Kevin Brass hit the nail squarely on the head with his TV review "Many Unanswered Questions in Bay Pollution Show," (Dec. 29). Brass was discussing the impact of the program "It's All of Us--Marine Pollution in San Diego Bay," produced by the San Diego Oceans Foundation, which attempts to document the myriad problems plaguing San Diego Bay. The program (which aired Dec. 29 on KFMB-TV (Channel 8)) provided a fairly substantial overview of pollution in the bay, such as toxic hot spots, urban runoff, ship repair and sewage from boats.

While we are most appreciative of the attention paid to the Environmental Health Coalition "Clean Bay Campaign" in the article "Environmentalist Searches for a Safe Harbor" (March 5), a few points deserve clarification. The article may give the impression that our efforts to protect San Diego Bay are just getting under way, or are confined to the efforts of one individual. In fact, the Clean Bay Campaign was launched in mid-1987 and has succeeded already in some bay protection actions and policy changes through the work of volunteer leaders and staff both in the Environmental Health Coalition and other agencies.

In an attempt to critique the toxics-control bills proliferating in Sacramento, a coalition of San Diego environmental groups joined dozens of others statewide Tuesday in announcing a "statement of principles" against which they plan to measure all future legislation.

An environmental group Tuesday urged the San Diego City Council to appeal a ruling by a federal judge that allows a private firm to fire up an experimental hazardous-waste incinerator in La Jolla. The Environmental Health Coalition presented council members with petitions that reportedly contain the names of 3,600 people opposed to the incinerator, which Ogden Environmental Services is preparing to start.

Congratulations and thanks go to the Air Pollution Control District Hearing Board members who demonstrated common sense, caring and courage on a very controversial and important issue. After months of testimony by witnesses from both sides, the board upheld the denial of a permit to operate for Phoenix Research Corp. in La Mesa. Phoenix Research Corp., owned by Union Carbide, produces 70% of the world's arsine gas supply and is located off Fletcher Parkway. Arsine gas is one of the most toxic materials in production today.

This letter is to respond to your April 13 article regarding the report of the Environmental Health Coalition regarding hazardous materials stored in San Diego County ("Study Points to the Toxics Among Us"). The EHC has done the community a service by bringing this information to the public's attention. However, it goes too far by suggesting the data requires significant, and undoubtedly costly, changes in present law to protect the public health. While there are many chemicals that would be hazardous if released, the real issue is whether there is a risk of such release.

The collection of buildings on West Bernardo Drive is a showcase of clean industry: manicured lawns and freshly planted trees sweep up to angular structures where hundreds of workers assemble television parts and electronic circuitry. There are no clouds of menacing black smoke coming from the factory stacks of Unisys, Sony, Northern Telecom and Hewlett-Packard, all situated a mile up the hill from a major housing development, gasoline stations and several new hotels. But the suburban scene doesn't mean these high-tech factories west of Interstate 15 are pollution-free.
