New Ballast Water Regulations (
The EPA has finally issued new requirements to regulate the ballast water of transoceanic ships. While this is a start, it simply is not enough. Some older ships do not have to comply with the new regulations until 2013. That means there will be three more years potentially invasive species infested water being dumped into domestic ports. We must still urge the EPA to do more.
