DEP has been awarded a grant to manage the pump-out grant program in Maine. The Clean Vessel Act was re-authorized by Congress this past year with additional funds to help pay for the installation and maintenance of holding tank pump-out stations in coastal areas. Administered by USF&W, this program was formerly run locally by SPO. Contact: Pam Parker. 207-287-7905.

New pumpout requirements for Maine marinas
Starting July 12, 2010 marinas providing pumout services to boaters must ensure that the pumpout system is accessible and operable at all stages of the tide and are limited to a maximum charge of $10. Some inland marinas are now required to provide pumpout service. Fore more information, see our fact sheet.
