New No-Discharge Zone in LI Sound
September 12, 2011
SoundingsTradeOnly: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Tuesday announced that a 760-square-mile area of Long Island Sound is now a “no-discharge zone.”
The EPA reviewed the New York agency’s proposal to establish a no-discharge zone for New York areas of Long Island Sound and determined that there are adequate facilities in the sound for boats to pump out their sewage. Boaters must now dispose of their sewage at these specially designated pumpout stations.
