(See <br />later in minutes: Operations and Maintenance Licensure) <br /> <br />OLD BUSINESS AND INFORMATIONAL ITEMS <br /> <br />Cruise Shio Sewal!e Releases Follow-uo Letter from Deoartment of Ecolol!v: Mr. Fay noted that <br />the agenda packet included Ecology's response to the Board's letter expressing concems about the <br />potential negative impact to water quality by the cruise ship industry. The State Board of Health also <br />received a response. <br /> <br />Member Westerman asked to clarify whether there was one or two discharges, since Ecology's letter <br />refers to two May dates: May 3 and 11. Mr. Fay said there was one discharge, but he is uncertain of the <br />exact date. She expressed concern about the time it would take for Ecology to write a Memorandum of <br />Understanding (MOD) with the Northwest Cruise Ship Association and suggested the Board write a <br />letter acknowledging receipt and recommending the issue be resolved sooner than March 2004. <br />
