Pump-Out Boat

Pump-out services are provided free of charge under the Clean Vessel Act to recreational boaters. The boat is operational from roughly May 15 through October 10. You do not need to be present for your boat to be pumped-out as long as the waste cap is accessible. Vessels in slips can only be pumped out if there is an open slip next to the boat, and the waste cap is safely accessible. 

Pump-Out Boat operations are conducted on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and on weekends during the day. The pump-out boat does not always get underway in inclement weather.


 The Pump-out Boat is out service for the 2023 season.
