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.

Re: Pumpout Costs

I'm with Minnewaska on this issue. While I would agree with the goals of clean water, that has to be consistent with a realistic definition of what "clean" means. It isn't the same as "pure", particularly in the coastal areas.

If we eliminated all biologics in the water column it would really screw up the food chain. Maybe the solids from a lectrasan are actually beneficial in the quantities that are actually released, particularly in areas that are flushed, like West Passage.
