Review of state abandoned and derelict vessel programs by Christine Lord Boring( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this report is to review the programs, policies, legislation, and funding sources used by individual states and local governments to address abandoned vessels. We conducted a phone and internet-based survey of thirty-six states and territories to gather the information presented in this document. While a few inland states were contacted, the majority of states and territories surveyed border the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean or the Great Lakes. Management of abandoned vessel issues varies by state and depends on local interpretation, motivation, and action. Appendix A includes detailed information for each state regarding the topics discussed below. This report is a brief summary of abandoned vessel laws and programs. Furthermore, state and local solutions to abandoned and derelict vessels continue to evolve and many jurisdictions are actively pursuing new legislation. Individuals interested in details on specific abandoned vessel programs and authorities should consult directly with the relevant state and federal agencies"--Introduction

Surveys of abandoned vessels : American Samoa( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

These vessels were a public nuisance and posed an array of threats, including pollution, public health, and physical crushing of coral habitats. Using the combined authorities of the three agencies, the vessels were cleaned, cut apart, and removed from the reef, and the grounding sites were restored. This experience, combined with increasing agency concerns about the decline of coral habitats from a variety of causes, led NOAA and others to inquire whether abandoned vessels may be causing significant harm to coral habitats elsewhere"--Page 6
