The National Marine Manufacturers Association is hosting a webinar Friday afternoon to help with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System/Clean Water Act permit process.

Between now and 2015, at least 30 state regulatory agencies will review and renew their marine general NPDES/Clean Water Act permits. The permits regulate discharges of copper bottom paint and bottom cleaning methods used by marinas.

The marine industry should expect that the new allowable limits of these discharges will directly impact the type and cost of services a marina can offer, as well as the equipment that might be needed to continue everyday operations, the NMMA said.

The free webinar, set for 2 p.m. (ET), is for marina operators, marine trades associations and other interested parties and will include:

  • an overview of the NPDES/Clean Water Act permit process
  • facts about copper bottom paint and its alternatives
  • the specific "lingo" needed to understand the permit process and content

The webinar will prepare trade associations and marina operators for a special program on the topic to be held at 11 a.m. May 4 at the American Boating Congress. This presentation will provide specific ways to advocate for reasonable discharge permit limits and will include firsthand experiences of industry leaders in states where these permits already have been approved.

Space is limited, so those interested are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
