WATERSHED & OCEAN ECOSYSTEMS
- Build better boats
- if winds or waves are too high, booms will be ineffective and will not provide adequate containment of the spill
- Dispersants are sprayed onto spills by specially equipped boats or planes.
Clean communities also have a better chance of attracting new businesses than those where litter is common. Make sure trash cans have lids that can be securely fastened. If you have curbside trash collection, don't put loose trash in boxes. Tie papers in a bundle before placing them in a curbside recycling bin.
