COAST GUARD REGULATORY ACTIVITIES UNDER THE FEDERAL WATER POLLUTION CONTROL ACT

The 1972 amendments to the Federal Water Pollution Control Act extended and strengthened the regulatory authority for water pollution control. The Coast Guard has a number of regulatory responsibilities under this Act including prevention of oil and hazardous substance discharges, removal of discharged oil and hazardous substances, inspection of vessels carrying oil and hazardous substances and vessel sewage treatment control. This paper discusses the activities and actions being taken by the Coast Guard pursuant to the Act. The substance of the regulations in effect, including their impact on vessels and facilities, will be explained. A preview of the regulations that are still being developed is also included.
