Happy

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director H. Dale Hall announced $12.26
million in grants to 32 states for their efforts to provide recreational
boaters with additional sewage pumpout facilities.  The grants assist
state
programs for both inland and coastal waters and are awarded through the
Service's Clean Vessel Act grant program.  The Sport Fish Restoration
and
Boating Trust Fund - supported by excise taxes paid on certain fishing
equipment and boat fuels taxes - funds the program.

"Boaters value clean, healthy waters and this program helps achieve that
goal," said Hall. "The program provides an essential service to boaters
and
allows our state partners to meet an increasing demand for pumpout
facilities."

The Clean Vessel Act grant program helps states ensure proper disposal
of
millions of gallons of boater waste.  For example, the program provided
for
the proper disposal of three million gallons of sewage from
Massachusetts
last summer alone.  Since the early 1990s, the program has awarded more
than $120 million to states for their Clean Vessel Act programs.

"The program is important to states, allowing them to better serve
boaters
and secure a more healthy aquatic environment," said Rowan Gould,
Assistant
Director for Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Programs. "And it is
not
only boaters who benefit, but anglers and all others who take enjoyment
from clean waters. "
