The marina offers free pump-outs on Dock One when scheduled with the Dock Office. Alternatively, you can request the mobile pump-out cart to be use in your slip. You can pay the marina to do it for you or do it on a DIY basis, for free.
The East River, where the marina is located, is a No Discharge Zone. Federal law says that untreated sewage (even if it’s been dosed with a deodorant product) can NOT be discharged in inland or coastal waters. This means the sewage from a portable toilet or a Type III holding tank can not be discharged unless you are in the ocean more than 3 miles offshore.
Federal law also states that if you have a holding tank with a “Y” valve allowing direct overboard discharge of untreated waste, it must be secured in the closed position while operating in all inland and coastal waters. Using a non-releasable wire tie, padlock, or removing the valve handle is considered adequate securing of the device.
