Abandoned Vessels

Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund Brochure

Boats that are abandoned in the waterways can pose a hazard to navigation and to the environment. As part of its commitment to provide clean, safe and enjoyable recreational boating on California’s waterways, DBW administers a grant program to assist local agencies in removing abandoned vessels from the waterways. DBW also recently released a report on recommendations for reducing the number of boats abandoned in California.
