Puget Sound Proposed NDZ

The Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE) continues to pursue a petition to the federal government to designate all of the Puget Sound and its tributaries as a No Discharge Zone, even in the face of scientific evidence that this is regulatory overkill.

If you are a Washington boater, please write. There's an easy form letter that should only take a few minutes to fill out.

And please pass along this information.

Here's a copy of the letter and report that the Marine Alliance sent to the WDOE on May 17, 2016.

NDZ are the political wave of the future ,probably everywhere , "look at me I'm cleaner than you!"

I would guess the incinerator toilets will become more popular , esp if a solar panel could charge a capacitor to fire the waste.

Today it requires an oil burner or a big gen set AC power supply.

Or a Composting toilet.

Where are the innovators?

In the middle 90's we were living in Shilshoe Marina. There was a movement to get rid of all the live-aboards because the water quality standards for fecal coliform were above the State limits. A study showed that if there were no live-aboards, the area would still not be in compliance. Fortunately the regulators backed down. Hopefully they will again.
