Thanks to everyone who came out for our SOLD OUT Abandoned Vessels Briefing!  Special thanks to our expert speakers.  We appreciate the engagement and interest from our membership and community on this important topic, and will consider doing a follow-up briefing on the enforcement issues around Abandoned Vessels later this spring.


Below, please find links to all the Power Point presentations from the Briefing

Abandoned vessels in the Bay and its surrounding harbors and waterways are a serious concern.  They can be both an environmental hazard and a danger to navigation. 

For our first Expert Briefing on 2014, BPC will bring together regional experts on this issue to brief our audience on what the state of the problem is, and what is being done to address it.
