Free Boat Pumpout Station Opens on Cuttyhunk Island

GOSNOLD – The Buzzards Bay Coalition and the town of Gosnold recently began the operation of a free boat waste pumpout station in Cuttyhunk Harbor.

The station will serve thousands of recreational boaters and help prevent harmful sewage from polluting local waters.

The new station is located at the Cuttyhunk Harbor fuel dock and will be open from dawn to dusk through September.

It replaces the mobile pumpout service previously offered by the Coalition. The Coalition’s R/V Buzzards Baykeeper previously visited the harbor one to two times per week from 2000 through 2016 and removed about 25,000 gallons of sewage from nearly 2,000 boats.

The vessel was unable to meet demand and only had a 200-gallon capacity.

The new station increases the capacity by eight times.
