California's Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW) helps make the waters safe for boaters. The agency's program areas include boating law enforcement officer training, boating education, abandoned vessel removal, beach erosion control, and aquatic pest control. DBW also provides free boating information for the public through the Internet. In addition, the agency plans, designs, and builds boating facilities. The department receives funding through boating fuel tax dollars, vessel registration fees, and boating facility construction loan payments. DBW has an annual budget of about $80 million.
