Proposed Puget Sound No Discharge Zone for vessel sewage
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has
reviewed our petition and has determined that
a no discharge zone can be established for Puget Sound. EPA found
that there are adequate facilities in the Puget Sound for vessels to
pump out their sewage and Washington state may move forward with a designation. With EPA’s approval in place, we
will be initiating rulemaking to make Puget Sound off limits to vessel sewage.
