Untreated sewage from a single boat toilet flush can cause the same environmental impacts as 10,000 flushes from a home whose sewage passes through a treatment plant. So what do you do with all that boat waste?
Boaters can sign up online at www.HoneyPotDay.org to receive one free mobile pumpout – the program runs in the summer from June – September.
The goal of this program is not only to encourage boaters to properly dispose of their waste but also to educate boaters about the convenient options to properly dispose of raw sewage and the detrimental environmental effects if improperly discharged into local waterways.
