Sewage No Longer Allowed|in Florida Keys Sanctuary

WASHINGTON (CN) - Boaters in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary may no longer discharge sewage while motoring through the sanctuary, as of Dec. 27, according to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration regulation.

The NOAA action will work with an earlier action by the Environmental Protection Agency creating a no discharge zone for the state waters of the sanctuary.

The regulation requires recreational boaters to lock and secure portable and installed marine toilets when they enter the boundaries of the sanctuary.
