Boat sewage (whether it is treated or not) can contain bacteria, viruses, nutrients, and chemicals that can harm water quality and public health. To address this problem, all of the coastal waters in Massachusetts are now No Discharge Zones for boat sewage, and pumpout facilities are conveniently located along the entire coast to help boaters dispose of this waste.
Massachusetts No Discharge Zones - No Discharge Zones, or NDZs, are designated bodies of water where the discharge of all boat sewage, whether treated or not, is prohibited. NDZs typically extend out to three miles from shore. See this map of Massachusetts No Discharge Zones (PDF, 1.2 MB) for coverage—which is all of state waters. In addition, most of New England waters are also NDZs. Boating outside New England? See a list of No Discharge Zones by State.
