Ballast water and sediment in vessels. After June 30, 2007: (1) allows a vessel to operate in waters of Indiana only if ballast water and sediment in the vessel have been sterilized; and (2) allows a discharge of ballast water or sediment into the waters of Indiana only if the department of environmental management (IDEM) has issued a permit for the discharge. Requires IDEM to establish a ballast water and sediment inspection program that ensures that aquatic nuisance species do not enter the waters of Indiana. Requires the water pollution control board to adopt rules to implement these provisions.
