Ordinary and QM Environment
Join Mr. Chris Leavitt, past Commander of the Houston Power Squadron and former Sea Scout Skipper, and a coastal and blue-water sailor, and former member of the Conservation Committee with the Boy Scouts of America, as he presents this topic with Kristi Pierce, the Houston Squadron’s Environment Chair, Kayaking program Chair, and a professional in water resources and environmental management.
Chris and Kristi will talk with you about marine sanitation devices, laws governing sewage discharge in international, local and sensitive areas; including how to handle gray water. There will be information on the Federal Water Pollution Control Act as related to oil discharges, and the required placards for your vessel. Finally, an open discussion on aquatic nuisance species are and how you can help stop their spread. There is a summary on the local aquatic environment (freshwater, coastal, estuary, and sanctuary) and how you can get involved with the Houston Squadron in our environmental and conservation projects.
Please, enter the teleconference early, and
after you announce yourself, mute your audio.
