Boat Hull Maintenance Strategies to Minimize Marine Pollution
Due to ecologically sensitive marine species, it is very important to minimize the release of antifouling paint residuals and spent sacrificial anode metals to Washington waterways during boat hull maintenance.
Boatyards and DIYs, the following tools are available to minimize antifouling paint chemicals and anode metals and all contain pollution prevention opportunities applicable to boatyard operators, boat maintenance contractors, and Do It Yourself (DIY) boat owners.
Thanks to a Public Participation Grant from Washington state Department of Ecology the following tools are available. Thanks to the Clean Boating Foundation for contributions to the project.
– Antifouling Paint Removal BMPs
– Sacrificial Anode Alternatives and Disposal
