    Sorry about this post, I saw the threads above as soon as I posted my question.....Does anybody have information about the "Operational Discharge Permit" from the EPA. Bass and Walleye Boat magazine mentions it this month and says there is a September 30, deadline. I looked online but couldn't find anything about Ohio. Just wondering what's going on.

    I'm not sure of all the dates, but I can't imagine this law does not get changed by the deadline. It was designed to prevent the ocean liners from dumping their ballast into fresh water and introducing foreign species. Somehow the language covers all boats PERIOD. From what I hear, it will be ammended by then to exclude pleasure craft.
