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.
