Webcast on Proposed Vessel NPDES Permits – July 2, 2008 12:00-1:30 pm ET

Webcast on Proposed Vessel NPDES Permits – July 2, 2008 12:00-1:30 pm ET

EPA is sponsoring a webcast to explain the contents of the two proposed NPDES permits that would cover discharges from commercial and recreational vessels. As the result of a court ruling, discharges of pollutants incidental to the operation of the vessels will no longer be exempt from the NPDES permit program as of September 30, 2008. In response to this court ruling, EPA has developed two permits covering sources of pollution such as the discharge of gray water and bilge water, and runoff from decks. The webcast will provide an opportunity for the interested public to ask questions about the contents of these proposed permits. The webcast will also help interested parties submit formal public comments on these permits. The public comment period ends on August 1, 2008. To register for this webcast, please visit
