Marina regulation targets metals in water

Published On: January 1, 2010Categories: Industry News

A proposed coastal marina permit regulation being developed by the State Water Resources Control Board mandates periodic analysis of water and bottom sediment for coastal marinas with more than 10 slips. The permit regulation is primarily designed to target copper in marine sediment.

Under the proposed regulation, all unidentified objects that float into a marina must be reported and tested at the cost of marina operators and owners.
