Quick Reference
The purpose of this guidance is to aid in the preparation of decommissioned military and commercial vessels using best management practices so they "will be environmentally sound in their use as artificial reefs," as required under Section 3516 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004 (P.L. 108-136). Options for managing obsolete and decommissioned military and commercial vessels include reusing all or parts of the vessel, recycling or scrapping, creating artificial reefs, and disposing of vessels on land or at sea, according to the guidance.
