Discharge of Sewage and Waste
It is illegal for a vessel to discharge sewage into the waters of Vermont.
- All vessels equipped with a marine toilet must have a waste-water holding system to prevent the discharge of waste products into surrounding waters.
- Any holding tank that is designed to allow discharge into the water (such as those with a “Y” valve) must have the openings sealed shut. Also, any discharge lines, pipes, or hoses must be disconnected and stored while the vessel is on Vermont waters.
- Residential use of vessels with overnight sleeping facilities is prohibited on waters that do not have sanitary waste pump-out facilities.
