Pump Out Directory
The Canal & River Trust have developed an interactive map to help boat users locate facilities along our waterways, including pump out stations, water points and recycling points.
It is well known that the disposal of sewage from boats on the inland waterways is prohibited by law and the navigation authorities require that sea toilets are sealed.
However, on small craft (less than 15 passengers) sewage disposal on our coastal waters is usually left to individual judgement (NB. check local regulations or byelaws) and very often holding tanks are either not fitted or not used.
In order to assist and encourage recreational boaters to locate and use pump-out facilities within the UK, The Green Blue has compiled a list of coastal pump out facilities divided into regions, giving the location and contact details.
The pump out locations listed in the Coastal Pump Out directory are those The Green Blue is currently aware of. If you spot any gaps please let us know and we’ll add the details.
