Re: Overboard discharge design
You can't pump untreated waste inside of 3 miles from shore (6 miles from shore in some areas, and in certain embayments). It's usually fine to pump out between 3 and 12 miles from shore. The "12-mile limit" is the extent of "US waters". The "3-mile limit" is the extent of "State waters".
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
