Coast to get 10 new pump-out stations for boaters

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — Boaters will have 10 more pump-out stations along the Maine coast this summer where they can dispose of on-board waste.

Rep. Chellie Pingree said Maine was one of 25 states receiving federal Clean Vessel Act grants this year.

Maine’s share of $352,000 will be used to install 10 new stations and to continue the operation and maintenance of the dozens of other existing pump-out stations along Maine’s coast.

The new stations will be in Bangor, Bar Harbor, Bath, Bucksport, Rockland, Bucks Harbor, Boothbay Harbor and Pulpit Harbor.
