While there is pressure at the state & regional levels to reduce copper in some of California's waterways, nothing is going to happen in a hurry, if indeed anything happens at all. Even in Washington
, where legislation passed several years ago, restricting copper in anti fouling
paints, boat owners have the better part of a decade before the law is enforced. And FYI, the USEPA is not involved in banning metals used in anti fouling
paints. It only sets the acceptable levels of metals in the water
Don't believe most of the uninformed bullsh*t you hear on the docks.
