Humboldt County Public Works Department invites you to take personal action to protect California’s waterways from boating pollution by completing a short Clean Boating Quiz.
This educational tool will test your knowledge on clean boating practices and provide you with key information on how to protect California’s waterways from pollution, such as:
• How to properly dispose of boat-related pollution
• Rules, regulations and penalties
• Tips on environmentally-friendly boat cleaning materials
• How to avoid oil and gas leaks, clean oily bilges and recycle boat motor oil
So when can you take the quiz? The quiz will be available from until August 20, 2017 on www.BoatCalifornia.com.
Participants will be eligible to receive a boater kit and/or life jacket (while supplies last).
Every Monday, during the eight-week quiz promotional period, 25 random participants will be selected to receive a boater kit filled with educational material and a life jacket.
Given the 700,000 registered recreational boats in the state, even a small amount of pollution from a fraction of the boats can causes serious harm to marine fish and wildlife. We hope you take advantage of this program and help keep California’s waterways clean.
