Title: EPA Region 1 No Discharge Zones
Abstract: This dataset details No Discharge Zones (NDZ) for New England. Boaters may not discharge waste into these areas. Boundaries were determined mostly by Federal Register Environmental Documents in coordination with Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management (MA CZM) and EPA Region 1 Office of Ecosystem Protection (OEP) staff.
Purpose: Dataset is being developed for a region wide initiative to enforce the no discharge of waste into coastal waters and also to assess how much of the existing New England coastline is designated as a "no discharge" zone.
