Using Boat Sewage Pumpouts

A clean marine environment is very important for everyone to enjoy the beautiful bodies of water throughout Washington. Boaters help keep Washington's waterways clean by disposing of boat sewage at pumpouts or dump stations.

Washington offers more than 100 disposal facilities with a variety of stationary and portable pumpouts to provide a convenient way to properly dispose of boat sewage.

Look for the Federal Clean Vessel Program symbol at the entrance to a marina advertising the presence of a pumpout and/or portable toilet dump station.

Remember, it is illegal to dump any untreated sewage into inland lakes, rivers, or coastal waters inside the three-mile limit.

Pump-Out Pointers

  • Use public toilets on shore whenever possible.
  • Keep your marine sanitation device in good operating condition.
  • To help prevent clogs, look for rapid dissolving marine toilet tissue specifically designed for the purpose.
  • Post use instructions near head.
  • Find a pumpout station. It only takes a few minutes to pump the waste out of a 15-gallon holding tank.
  • Follow pumpout instructions.
  • If instructions aren't posted or aren't clear, ask the marina operator. Encourage the marina operator to post easy-to-understand instructions.
  • When finished with pumpout, rinse water through the system for one minute.
  • Expensive breakdowns commonly occur when the marina's sewer line gets clogged because of inadequate rinsing. Flushing water through the system is cheap preventative maintenance and helps prevent odor.
  • Use environmentally compatible holding tank deodorants.
  • Pumpout only your holding tank. Pumpouts are not designed to handle bilge water or solid objects.
  • Some boaters pump out their holding tanks and then drive off, leaving the unit still running. Make sure the pump is off before pulling away so it will work for the next boater.
  • Don't forget to wash your hands when you are done.
  • Consider using a mobile pumpout service if you don't want to service the holding tank yourself.

Don't waste away our waterways!

Proper disposal of sewage protects our waterways and allows the living things to keep on living.

Help us keep Washington waters clean!

Remember when you caught your first fish?
Our children will not experience that same thrill unless we keep this country’s waterways pollution free. Using pump-out stations and properly disposing of our trash is something we can all do to protect our waters.
