Ballast Water

LCA has been a pioneer in developing Best Management Practices (BMPs) to minimize the potential ballast waters, thus eliminating the risk of exotic species being introduced to our ecosystem. As early as 1993, LCA implemented a plan to address the ruffe in western Lake Superior, the first ballast water management effort in North America. Today, LCA members have undertaken initiatives of their own to further address the introduction and spread of aquatic nuisance species through the ballast water on oceangoing vessels.
