NOAA releases plan for managing, protecting Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary

NOAA today released the final management plan and environmental assessment for the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary in Washington state. The document provides a framework for the sanctuary to refine its research, education and outreach programs, create and enhance partnerships, and manage potential threats to the sanctuary’s marine resources. The plan includes a new regulation prohibiting wastewater discharge from cruise ships within the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. Updates to other regulatory language have been made to ensure clarity and consistency with the National Marine Sanctuaries Act.
