Georgia Marine Toilet Cert

Vessels equipped with a marine toilet must follow these regulations.

  • If operated on Lakes Allatoona, Blackshear, Blue Ridge, Clarks Hill, Hartwell, Russell, Seminole, Sidney Lanier, Sinclair, Walter F. George Reservoir, or West Point, the vessel’s marine toilet must be equipped with a holding tank that is built so that it can be emptied only by being pumped out. The Y valve must be removed to prevent discharge.
  • If built before January 1, 1978, the vessel may be equipped with a fully operable USCG–certified MSD if the MSD is part of the vessel’s original equipment.
  • Sewage from the wastewater holding system or MSD must conform to the current guidelines for disposal.
