Know where you can dump!

Floaties aren't nice for us or the fish. You have to be 500m off-shore to dump your untreated sewage.

Boaties, check you know the Bay of Islands discharge rules!

marine toiletIn our harbours, untreated sewage can contaminate the shellfish we eat or make water unsafe for swimming for a long time after it's discharged.

Dispose of your boat sewage properly. No discharging untreated sewage in the dark blue areas highlighted on the map below!

  • 500 m from the high-tide mark
  • Shallower than 5 m

Alternatively, pump it out at a marina pumping facility.
