The Marinas and Recreational Boating Workgroup provides an informative forum for agencies (state, federal, and local), marinas, and other organizations to address nonpoint source (NPS) pollution related to marinas and recreational boating statewide. This workgroup was established by the Interagency Coordinating Committee (IACC) for the state's NPS Program, and is coordinated by the California Coastal Commission and the State Water Resources Control Board. This workgroup has been meeting at least twice annually since 2003.
The Antifouling Strategy Sub-Workgroup addresses water quality issues related to copper-based pesticide antifouling paints for boat hulls, and other antifouling issues. This is a sub-workgroup of the Marinas and Recreational Boating IACC Workgroup, and typically meets jointly with the Marinas IACC Workgroup.
Participants in this workgroup consist of state agency staff, local agency staff, and marina stakeholder groups. Workgroup meetings can be attended by teleconference call or in person. If you would like to make yourself available as a guest speaker, observe a meeting, or become an active participant please...
Agendas, meeting notes, and presentation materials from the 2004 through 2010 meetings of the Antifouling Strategy Sub-Workgroup are posted on the Department of Pesticide Regulation website.
