EPA bans sewage discharge from vessels all along Mass. coast

Jun 28th, 2014 | By | Category: General

On Friday, Massachusetts officials announced that the US Environmental Protection Agency had approved extending the no-discharge zone to areas off all the state’s coast — the last of New England’s waters to come under the ban.

The new rules prohibit commercial and recreational vessels from dumping sewage in the most highly trafficked areas, extending the ban from Cape Ann to Scituate, between Woods Hole and Vineyard Haven, and south of Hyannis.
