This article requires due diligence. All should read and digest
(Pardon the pun)
Of special note the following;
No-Discharge Zones
CWA section 312(f) authorizes the establishment of no-discharge zones (NDZs), areas in which
discharges from vessels of any sewage, whether treated or not, are prohibited. States may
establish an NDZ for some or all of their waters if EPA determines that adequate facilities for the
safe and sanitary removal and treatment of the sewage are reasonably available. States also may
request that EPA establish NDZs by rulemaking (1) if EPA determines that the protection and
enhancement of the quality of the waters require such a prohibition, or (2) to prohibit the
discharge of vessel sewage into a drinking water intake zone. There are currently 67 NDZs in
the United States covering 115 waterbodies; 64 of these NDZs were established by states.
