BMP Update 2016&2017

The statutes allowing Best Management Practices Plans expired at the end of 2015. Legislation has been introduced to correct this. During this time the Department will not require coverage under a permit, if a vessel operator continues to operate under the existing or draft Best Management Practices Plan.
