Sewage from boats harms the environment, particularly in busy or poorly flushed anchorages, and sensitive areas such as shellfish beds. As a matter of fact, in Canada, it is illegal to dump sewage from boats within three nautical miles off shore.
Please visit one of the many pump-out locations in the lower mainland that are listed below. If you not able to visit a pump-out location, please ensure that you are in open waters, or as far off shore as possible in the fastest flowing ebbing waters, before emptying your holding tank. Help our Club be Clean Marine.
