New pumpout boat services expand this summer in South Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.
It will now be easier for recreational boaters to safely pump out vessel sewage and keep Washington’s waters clean with an expansion of mobile pumpout services in South Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. The State Parks Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Grant Program recently funded over $900,000 in new pumpout projects throughout the state, roughly $200,000 of which will help fund pumpout vessels in Pierce County and the Port of Lopez. Pierce County and the South Puget Sound Mobile Pumpout Program received about $90,000 to fund two years of seasonal pumpout boat operation and maintenance expenses. Jeff Barney, the watershed planner for Pierce County Surface Water Management, applied for the CVA grant to fund the mobile pumpout service for South Puget Sound, an area that is currently limited in pumpout services.
