Can you link the proposal? Fairly standard to prohibit discharge out to 3nm and I sort of get why Cape Cod Bay would be banned, since it would have to make landfall in just about every direction.
Nevertheless, I get your point completely. The idiocy of increasing regulation on such a minuscule amount of waste compared to the millions of gallons that are blatantly discharged every day, is little more than an emotional battle for the environmentalists. I'm not opposed to black water discharge restrictions inside the 3nm. I am very concerned by the thought of gray water discharge restrictions, which is a current topic of consideration at the EPA, via the Clean Boating Act of 2008.
