A. This part sets forth the procedures by which an owner and operator of a vessel transporting solid wastes or regulated medical wastes upon the navigable waters of the Commonwealth, to the extent allowable under state law, may establish and maintain evidence of financial responsibility to cover liability of the owner and operator arising from a deposit of solid wastes or regulated medical wastes into state waters.
