Due to high interest on the draft Vessel General Permit (VGP) and Small Vessel General Permit (sVGP) programs, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has scheduled two question and answer webinars. These sessions will allow those stakeholders who could not attend one of EPA’s public meetings to give oral public comments. The purpose of these sessions will be to answer questions from the public and to take public comment. Please note that EPA may impose limits on the time allowed for oral statements. EPA is hosting webinars at different times to accommodate stakeholders in different time zones.

 The first webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31 from 10 am – 12 pm (EST). To register for the January 31 webinar, please visit

The second webinar is scheduled for Tuesday February 7 from 3 pm – 5 pm (EST). To register for the February 7 webinar, please visit https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/278817074. (1/25/12).
