Ban on Copper Bottom Paint Postponed

The restrictions on the use of copper-based antifouling paint on recreational vessels have been delayed until January 1, 2026.

Senate Bill 6210 has just passed the House and Senate and is on the Governor’s desk to sign.  The WA. St. Dept. of Ecology has recommended delaying the antifouling paint restrictions to allow time for further study, due to concerns some non-copper alternatives might be more harmful to the environment than the copper-based paints they replace.
