The USCG is accepting applications for the biennial William M. Benkert Marine Environmental Protection Award program. The award recognizes environmental excellence and achievement in maritime operations by marine vessel and facility operators. "The award program is the USCG's formal recognition of two vital realities.

Loy. The objectives of the William M. Benkert Award are to : -Increase public awareness of the importance of protecting the marine environment; -Encourage adherence to the international environmental management system methods; -Encourage innovations in operations, maintenance, cargo handling, waste management, training and other industrial activities; and -Provide a means for winners to share their successful methods and techniques with others in the industry. Award applications are due by Nov. 15, 1999.
