Derelict Vessel Prevention
Derelict and abandoned vessels threaten the health and safety of the marine environment including wildlife and people. San Juan County’s Derelict Vessel Program works to remove and dispose of derelict and abandoned vessels in the County’s waters. The MRC is partnering with the County to identify vessels at risk of becoming derelict or abandoned. To learn more about the program and how you can report a derelict vessel please check out the County's Derelict Vessel Removal Program webpage.
MRC Action on the Derelict Vessel Program
The current County Derelict Vessel Program was reinstated by the County due to the hard work of former MRC member, and Port of Friday Harbor Commissioner, Barbara Marrett. Read more about this effort in the following MRC recommendations:
