Dear Organizational Members of Tall Ships America

The EPA is accepting comments regarding its regulations for vessels’ “Incidental Discharge” and the Vessel General Permit requirements.  We have been following this issue, and commenting when possible, since 2008. Our comments, directly from Tall Ships America and from you the Members, have had an important and positive effect on the evolution of these regulations, but we are not done and it is time to hit it again. 

Please download a letter template that you can use for submitting a comment from your organization.  Feel free to customize it to suit your organizations’ needs, but be sure to retain all of the essential points. 

Comment period closes on 21 Feb 2012!

 Then Mail the Original plus three copies to:

Environmental Protection Agency
Mail Code: 4101T
1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
