Clean-Boating Requirements

dweller - April 4, 2011

The US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) is developing future clean-boating requirements for all recreational boats in the next few months, and they need to hear from boaters. During April, they are hosting weekly "webinars" to solicit boater input (April 6 - 6 pm, April 14 - 8 pm, April 22 - 10 am, and April 25 - 12 pm; all eastern time).

EPA is looking at several broad categories of vessel discharges, including antifouling paints and zincs; graywater (from showers and sinks); bilge water; and cleaning products/maintenance practices.
