I have never heard of this law and I am not in compliance with it as I have a diverter valve merely pointing at "tank". I am in Toronto. Everyone knows that the Great Lakes are "no discharge" (not that this stops cities with combined storm and sewer lines from overflowing during heavy rains to the fourth or fifth power in amounts of raw poo greater than that of every holding tank in the province), but I thought that our laws mirrored those of the States due to the "common waters" situation. Unlike some areas, there are pump-outs are almost every club and marina in the area.

Trust me, I am NOT undoing my head hoses. They'll have to pry my cold, dead hands off my Henderson pump first...which is not really the way I wanted to go out in the first place!
