Re: Pumpout Costs

I would never suggest that dumping a holding tank inside a confined harbor was a good idea. But, believe that every single boat in Narragansett Bay could dump their lectrasan tank in West Passage on any given weekend and the Bay would flick it aside, let alone between Beavertail and Point Judith.

There needs to be reasonable balance here. Humans will have an impact on the environment. However, our current rules seem to be written like speed limits. They are backed off 10 mph from what they know you will do, not what makes sense.
