The Environmental Protection Agency is calling for comments on marine sanitation devices, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced.

Specifically, EPA seeks input regarding vessels operating on navigable waters that use sewage treatment devices; technical information on the performance, effectiveness and costs of vessel sewage treatment devices, including performance testing data; suggestions on what, if any, changes to the performance standards might be appropriate; and information on monitoring, record keeping and reporting or vessel sewage discharges.

To join NMMA's task force on MSDs or provide input on NMMA's pending comments, contact Cindy Squires at csquires@nmma.org or (202)737-9766.
