The U.S. attorney's office says Robert Fred Smith entered his plea yesterday in San Diego federal court.
Prosecutors say Smith admitted dumping concrete, paint and rust into the bay to avoid disposal costs while repairing a boat in 2006.
Smith also pleaded guilty to making false statements to investigators from the Coast Guard and Environmental Protection Agency during questioning about the dumping.
The boat's owner, Joseph Anthony O'Connor, remains in custody in Malta awaiting extradition.
Smith faces up to five years in prison when he's sentenced in October.
