Clean Water Permit for Boats

A month or so back we published an article regarding a court decision that could force any boater that has a bilge pump to obtain a discharge permit from the federal government (see archives).  A new article from Michigan, a state with the third largest boating population) is presented here that talks more about this and notes a bill in Congress to overturn this ruling and protect boaters.  These permits could be as high as $1500 per year and many boaters will have issues with that.  For more information go to:
