Marine Engines

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description DES has spearheaded a regional coalition to work jointly to encourage the purchase and use of low polluting marine engines by New England states and the boating public in the Northeast. The coalition includes representation from the six New England states plus New York, the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). Participation also includes some large engine manufacturers and the NH Marine Trades Association (NH MTA). According to the NMMA, this regional coalition is the first of its kind in the country to bring states, environmental groups, and the regulated industry to the table to facilitate such an effort.

The NH MTA and DES signed a voluntary agreement to encourage the accelerated phase-in of low polluting marine engines prior to the EPA 2006 mandate. Dealers in NH are being invited to sign onto the agreement.
