Managing Boat Sewage the Environmental Way: There is an App for that!

Thursday, June 8, 2017

California’s recreational boaters in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Southern California now have a new digital tool to aid in the proper disposal of boat sewage. The “Pumpout Nav” app is designed to help boaters locate the closest sewage pumpout station for their vessels. Using the mobile device’s location, the app displays the pumpout stations closest to the boater, their operational status, as well as the cost, hours and location within the marina. The new app is free and available for download from both the Android Play and iOS Apple stores.
