Notice: The Discharge of Oil is Prohibited

The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits the discharge of oil or oily waste into or upon the navigable waters of the United States or the waters of the contiguous zone if such discharge causes a film or sheen upon, or discoloration of, the surface water. Violators are subject to a penalty of $5,000 or more.

The use of soaps to disperse oil is illegal. Violators may be fined up to $25,000 per incident.
