The EPA will hold a listening session seeking input on suggested improvements for the next Vessel General Permit (VGP). The permit regulates discharges incidental to the normal operation of certain vessels. The agency is seeking public comment on requirements currently contained in the 2008 VGP and any changes or additions recommended for the next permit. The 2008 VGP expires on Dec. 19, 2013.
The listening session will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Those planning to provide comment by phone will need to register in advance of the listening session. The agency will accept written comments and relevant information for developing the next permit until Dec. 31, 2010.
