CHAPTER 7: Water Activities & The Marine Environment


You can only dump raw sewage into the water if you are more than 3 nautical miles from shore. Furthermore, some states, and Canada, have regulations for the disposal of treated waste as well as gray water, shower water or laundry water.

As a rule, always consult your local authorities to find out what can and cannot be dumped before heading out on the water.
