Description Marinas and the Oil Transfer Rules - Washington Department of Ecology’s oil transfer rules are designed to help prevent spills from facilities transferring oil over water. Under these rules, we expect fewer spills and a better response capability; increasing the protection of our natural resources from the environmental hazards of oil spills.
You can find the oil transfer rules for facilities in Washington Administrative Code (WAC) chapter 173-180. We prepared this guidance to help marinas that are Class 4 facilities comply with the oil transfer rule, but this information can also help recreational marinas keep their waters clean and free of oil spills and other accidents.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
