SAN DIEGO - A lawsuit that led to the cessation of fireworks at SeaWorld may threaten waterside fireworks throughout the state. Boaters along the West Coast - from San Diego to Puget Sound, Wash. - have enjoyed watching waterside fireworks for decades. Such fireworks are popular with boaters nationally and internationally. SeaWorld stopped their fireworks shows August 19 to avoid a lawsuit from San Diego Coastkeeper, an environmental group that contends chemical and paper residue from the fireworks are polluting Mission Bay.
