Los Angeles County officials are not doing enough to clean up urban water runoff polluting the Santa Monica Bay, according to a lawsuit filed by two environmental groups. The Natural Resources Defense Council and Santa Monica BayKeeper are accusing the Department of Public Works of 11 violations of the Clean Water Act, attorney Everett DeLano said Thursday. All the violations have to do with the monitoring and control of storm water runoff that enters the bay.

Millions of gallons of polluted runoff from state highways in Los Angeles and Ventura counties will be prevented from contaminating local waters and beaches every year under a court agreement reached Friday between Caltrans and environmentalists. Caltrans vowed to reduce storm water pollution by 20% below 1994 levels along more than 1,000 miles of state highway in the region, according to the agreement in federal court with the Natural Resources Defense Council and Santa Monica BayKeeper.

Warning of a local disaster equal to the Exxon Valdez spill, environmentalists charged in a report Thursday that oil companies and government agencies along the Los Angeles County coast are ill-equipped to prevent or contain major spills from oil tankers. "This region faces unnecessary risk because of a lack of clear planning and preparedness for an oil spill," said Steve Fleischli, executive director of Santa Monica BayKeeper, a nonprofit environmental group.
