Maybe a federal policy like the one rejected by the US Senate in 2008 because it was not fast enough for Senator Boxers state rights, would work.

Even the presidential infinitives program for oceans seems to want to try and zone these problems associated with pollution from ocean use. Unfortunately this is more of the same policy of solution being the solution to pollution.
