USA – Zero Emission Zones


Federal Laws that regulate air and water emissions from watercraft. Every lake in the US is regulated by either the state or local government or in many cases the Army Corp of Engineers and National Park Service. With that said there are lakes in the US where certain types of boats can be limited or banned. There are lakes where engine size is limited and lakes that are two small to support gas engines, but electric is allowed.There are no tax incentives or reduced annual registration fee for using a specific type of engine. In some states if a boat is less than a certain size then the registration fee can be waived, but that is regardless of the propulsion method.
