Recreational Vessels and the Clean Boating Act

()Congress passed the Clean Boating Act (CBA) in 2008 as an amendment to the Clean Water Act. The CBA requires EPA to identify discharges incidental to the normal operation of recreational vessels for which management practices are reasonable and practicable to develop. These management practices can help to limit the amount of pollution discharged into our nation's waters.
