Keeping blackwater and sewage out of our waters

Pump out facilities in a marina


In some of our countries, holding-tanks and pump-out facilities are mandatory but in many, they still aren't.

Sewage contaminates the water, promotes the spread of viruses and bacteria such as E.coli, can reduce the amount of oxygen in the water by promoting species such as mucilage (or 'sea snot') to grow, as well as being unsightly and smelly.

Cleaner Marina Tips

Let's provide pump-out facilities in our marinas, giving boat-owners and borrowers a place to process their blackwater and reduce sewage contamination in our seas.

It's also important for us to educate boat users, owners and bertholders on the health dangers of pumping boat sewage into our waters.
