Miami-Dade County considering ordinance on dock foam

The NMMA said today that the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners is considering an ordinance that would require marine facilities to repair or replace unencapsulated polystyrene if it shows evidence of degradation, shredding or other damage.

Polystyrene is the foam most often used for dock flotation.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association also said today in its Currents newsletter that the county will not issue any Class 1 permits for applicants using unencapsulated polystyrene.

The county’s Government Operations Committee approved the ordinance Wednesday, and it will be considered by the commissioners for a final vote.
