Hello CRYA members,

The Washington Dept of Ecology has made Puget Sound a no discharge zone. This strengthens the environmental protections for Puget Sound. This also will mean changes to what is permitted for boaters using those waters. See the attached documents for more information... PugetSoundnowaNDZ.pdf, and DepartmentofEcologyNewsRelease.

Regards,

Andy Meyer
CRYA Executive Vice Presiden
