The Department Of Ecology Says No More http://kuow.org/post/boat-sewage-puget-sound-department-ecology-says-no-more <p>It's not something you want to think about: excrement floating in our lovely oceans. Some boaters release their sewage into the water, but Washington's Department of Ecology is trying to change that. They are drafting a petition to the Environmental Protection Agency to classify the Puget Sound as a "no discharge zone." If approved, it would prohibit boaters from releasing any sewage — treated or untreated — in the Sound. Ross Reynolds talks with Department of Ecology supervisor Mark Henley.

But boating under the influence laws are about to get a lot tougher. This Sunday, a new state law will take effect that will make drunk boating as punishable as drunk driving.
