Cruise Ships Dump 90% Of Grey Water In BC


More evidence of bad enviromental behavior. Just say no to cruise ships.

1.54 billion liters of grey water were generated by ships off the British Columbia coast in 2017 – the equivalent of more than 600 Olympic-size swimming pools, said a study. World Wildlife Fund Canada says cruise ships traveling between Washington state and Alaska are responsible for dumping “the vast majority” of the potentially toxic grey water that ends up off the B.C. coast each year. Cruise ships accounted for 1.37 billion (almost 90%) of the 1.54 billion liters of grey water generated off the B.C. coast in 2017, the study revealed. Shailaja A. Lakshmi reports. (Marine Link)
