Kick off the boating season with a free mobile sewage pumpout!

Dumping raw sewage into waterways can spread disease, harms aquatic life, lowers oxygen levels in the water, and is just gross. And it’s against the law to dump in U.S. navigable waters.  Click here to learn more about the effects of sewage in our waterways and get a free mobile pumpout to jump start your boating season.

For your very own cruisers guide and to locate a sewage pumpout location, download the Southern California Boater’s Guide app from iTunes.
