This workshop provided an information source for MTRB's Committee on Reducing Tankbarge Pollution and a forum for all interested parties to discuss the Coast Guard's proposals for reducing tankbarge pollution. The workshop was divided into five groups with the following topics: Congressional Mandates; Technical Options; Personnel; Operating environment; and Insurance, Liabilities, and Penalties. Each group was instructed to focus on the various ways of reducing tankbarge pollution and the problems and costs of each. The Congressional Mandates group was asked to look at all congressional mandates that interact with barge transportation, in addition to the environmental mandates. The papers in these Proceedings present a cross-section of the views, issues, and costs of reducing tankbarge pollution.
