Scattering of Ashes in Bodies of Water

Scattering of Ashes in Bodies of Water



Inland Bodies of Water – Local Jurisdictions apply. Check with local ruling authority for all inland lakes, rivers, streams, etc.

Ocean – Per EPA rules, scattering must take place 3 nautical miles from shore. It is also a good idea to check with the local jurisdiction of the region (state, city, etc.)



Very strict laws govern this internationally. Each individual country's Consulate/Embassy should be contact prior to travel to ascertain whether this is possible and any additional documentation is provided. For a list of country guidelines visit:
