EPA's Proposed Vessel General Permits: Background and Issues


Congressional interest in this topic has been evident for some time, as reflected in two bills enacted in 2008 to exempt certain vessels from a CWA permit requirement, thus restricting the population of vessels subject to the current VGP. In the 112th Congress, the House passed H.R. 2838, which included provisions to establish a uniform national standard for ballast water discharges that would supersede EPA and Coast Guard ballast water management requirements, void the VGP, and supersede existing state standards or permits for any discharge incidental to the normal operation of a commercial vessel. The enacted measure (P.L. 112-213) deleted the ballast water provisions and extended a permit moratorium for certain small vessels. Bills: H.R. 2838
