The CA Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery was requested by the Sonoma County Sheriff, the Sonoma county Regional Parks Department Harbor Master, and the CA Department of Fish and Game to remove five abandoned commercial vessels from Bodega Bay before Large winter storms threaten to sink the vessels. Four of the vessels are currently being maintained by the harbor master and the Spud Point Marina and one vessel is aground in the middle of Bodega Bay.

The project is an action by a State regulatory agency, as authorized by state regulations and codes, to restore and protect the environment.
