Pollution Prevention

Waste Disposal and Recycling

Marine debris not only harms important habitats and wildlife, but also can cause damage to your boat. Prevent waste from entering our waterways by: reducing, reusing and recycling!

Spillproof Fueling

Filling up fuel tanks is one of the most common ways that we unintentionally pollute our waters. However, with care, boaters can take steps to mitigate the risk of accidently spilling oil or fuel.


Untreated water from your onboard sinks and showers, and the wastewater from cleaning your boat with detergents is a major polluter of the marine environment. Learn how to prevent graywater from impacting your local waters and wildlife. 

Oils and Fuel Spills

One pint (2 cups) of oil released into the water can spread into a 1-acre oil slick, which is larger than a football field. Learn what steps to take in case of an oil spill and how to prevent it from spreading. 


Sewage discharge from marine heads can cause significant damage to surrounding waters. Discover different ways to manage blackwater on your vessel and what regulations you may need to follow.
