The Clean Vessel Act of 1992 was signed November 4, 1992 (106 Stat.
5039) and codified in 33 U.S.C.
132 2. The Act amended the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (Wallop-Breaux Act; 16 U.S.C.
777) and established the Clean Vessel Act Grant Program to provide funding to
the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Commonwealths, and territories of the United States of America (States).
Funding allows States to construct, renovate, operate, and maintain pumpout stations and waste reception facilities for recreational boaters and to inform boaters about the use, benefits, and availability of pumpout stations and waste reception facilities.
Subsequent reauthorizations of the Acts have allowed for the continuation of CVA.
