Bilge is not functioning

I'll replace it in the next week or so. Until then I bought a hand pump that I will use to pull water out of the bilge and into a bucket. The bucket will be poured overboard. I had LE stop by yesterday and mention something about no dumping. He didn't say it as I was pouring water - it was 20 minutes later or something. I don't know if it was coincidence, he saw from a distance or someone reported it. Is it legal to empty the bilge that way? It's the same water that would be pumped out the back if the pump was functioning.

Do or do not... There is no try.
