Puget Sound is now a No-Discharge Zone

Effective May 10th , 2018, Puget Sound has now been declared a No-Discharge Zone.

It has been illegal since the 1972 Clean Water Act to discharge untreated sewage (black water) into coastal waters.  Over the years, there have been a couple ways for boaters to legally treat raw sewage before discharging, but most boaters contain all their sewage in a holding tank (Type III) and utilize a pumpout station.

Now, all sewage must be contained and be pumped at a pumpout station.  If your boat has a toilet on board, you are required to have a marine sanitation device (MSD).  For further details, please see the Dept of Ecology’s site.

Gray water (sinks/showers) discharge is still allowed.

Shilshole Liveaboard Assoc. Annual Mtg summary

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Last evening was our annual meeting at CYC,  which was a chance for all liveaboards at Shilshole to meet their representatives.  There were about 65 attendees at the hour long meeting that reviewed the current issues affecting us, as liveaboards here at Shilshole.

Al Hughes reviewed the history of the Assoc. and the most recent liveaboard agreement negotiations with the Port; Brianne discussed the goals and focus of our collective community involvement and Kristen encouraged everyone to participate in the V-man VHF radio check-in on Monday nights and to get involved with our Shilshole Preparesemergency preparedness at Shilshole.

Thank you to all that attended and if you have an interest in getting involved with your Liveaboard Assoc., please contact us. Our contact info is on the board at the top of your dock, at the office or with your dock captain.
