Boat Pumpout Facilities

Find information about convenient options for boat sewage disposal in coastal Massachusetts.

Boat pumpout facilities provide a convenient way to properly dispose of boat sewage. Many of the more than 120 pumpouts in Massachusetts are pumpout boats. These vessels have the capacity to bring the pumpout to the boater, providing added convenience. An interactive GoogleTM Map of Pumpouts for Recreational Boats and a GoogleTM Map for Commercial Vessel Pumpouts are available that display pumpout locations along the Commonwealth's coast. In addition, the Clean Vessel Act Program produces a Boaters Pocket Guide to Pumpout Facilities.

For a table from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) with the 2017 list of pumpouts for recreational boats, organized by coastal region, see the Classic Site for Boat Pumpout Facilities in Coastal Massachusetts.
