This week, BPC staff traveled to Redondo Beach in Southern California to attend the Winter Meeting of California Marine Affairs and Navigation Conference (CMANC). CMANC is a membership organization representing California harbors, ports and marine interest groups. As an organization that also includes members in these groups, BPC has a long history of working with CMANC and resonates with their mission to ensure maritime interests are supported at the state and federal level.
Attendees at the meeting heard presentations from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife, among others. Topics included the Corps’ 2017 Work Plan, new copper regulation, funding for beneficial reuse, updates to the Marine Life Management Act, and more.

We thank CMANC for providing a valuable opportunity to engage with regulators and stakeholders in the industry, and look forward to future meetings.
