Re: Pumpout Costs

Brian-
Complaints & meetings: Kudos for fighting evil. No, really, I do believe that if we don't stop the little things, it encourages folks to take bigger bites. And that folks that "only" steal a buck a million times know that those million people won't bother to complain because it is just a buck. (sigh)

$100 a month, huh? Almost sounds like, wait for it, a SEWER TAX! Them gummint boys are going to turn boaters into responsible members of society, like it or not.

Of course boaters aren't the only beneficiaries. In the same way that "everyone" benefits when open cesspools are banned in a community, everyone benefits ftom cleaner water. The dockside restaurant, the folks dining at it, the folks strolling along the beach or swimming in it...No reason that it should be JUST the boaters paying the full monty for the pumpouts. We all pay for the sewer plants ashore, even if we use compost heaps.

Same same. But $25, with no warning..."I want it back! Open that tank and give it back!" I'm going to start a $50 "correspondance fee" whenever some utility wants to speak to me. Heck, if they can stick me with their franchise fees...I can stick it back too, right?

Re: Pumpout Costs

"and I get my $25 back?" "
No no no, that's being a victim.

I want my $25 back, and I'll need another $25 for a restocking fee, plus ten dollars more for the transaction fee.

The only way to win some games, is to refuse to play. Or, play by your own rules, as they do.

Whaddayamean, you don't understand? You assumed I was going to pay you, when I was selling my valuable compost? That I always get paid for? See, there's a SIGN posted in MY office.

Re: Pumpout Costs

Brian,
Good for ya! With any luck there is a serious fine associated with this.

I would still post something on Active Captain. If they're gouging on the pumpout you have to wonder what else they're gouging on.

Jim

Re: Pumpout Costs

sailordave is correct. "No Discharge" has no exceptions, and that is how Rhode Island interprets it as far as Lectrascans are concerned.

The State DEPs can really be anal about discharges. There was a Navy facility in New London, CT that pumped water from the Thames River (actually an estuary) into a shallow pool to recreate a salt water "ground plane" for submarine antenna testing. After they finished their testing, they pumped the water back into the river until the State made a "federal case" of it and forced the Navy to treat the used salt water as industrial waste. This wasn't a case of lubricants or any other contaminants, but the environmentalists asserting that the water had been warmed by the sun and was probably biologically different than the river it came from. Increased algae or plankton? Who knows what they were afraid of--logic?

Do you really think these DEP folks would make an exception for a Lectrasan (which is probably producing a better product than a lot of municipal sewage plants)?

Which one? I've never paid there at all, but I'm sure I took on fuel at the same time.
