How Marina Operators Can Help

As a marina operator, there are a number of things you can do to protect the waters you depend on for your livelihood:

  • Install pump-out and dump station facilities -- on your own, with nearby
    marinas or through the Marine Sewage Pumpout and Dump Station Grant Program.

  • Establish and enforce a locked head policy.

  • If you have pumpout or dump stations, post a standardized
    sign. Signs are available free from the Division of Coastal Management.

  • Maintain your pumpout or dump stations in good working order.

  • Encourage boaters to use pumpouts and dump stations.
    Give boaters information on marine sewage.

  • Participate in surveys on pumpouts, dump stations and
    marine sewage.

  • For more information on Marine Sewage Pumpout and Dump Station Grant Program, contact the Division of Coastal Management.

  • For additional ideas on how your marina can help protect water quality, check out our manuals on Best Management Practices for N.C. Marinas and Stormwater Best Management Practices

  • Use best management practices for pressure washing boats.
