California – Ballast Water Management
The California State Lands Commission (SLC) issued a Letter to Shipping Agents stating that, effective March 22, it will commence enforcement of new Ballast Water Management Regulations. The new regulations apply to vessels arriving in California carrying ballast water from another port or place within the Pacific Coast Region. These regulations supplement current regulations that apply to vessels arriving in California from ports or places outside the Pacific Coast Region.
