Pump Out Facilities in Lymington Harbour and the Solent
In order to assist and encourage recreational boaters to locate and use pump-out facilities within the UK, The Green Blue has compiled a list of pump out facilities divided into regions, giving the location and contact details.
In Lymington Harbour, a sewage pump out facility is available at the Lymington Yacht Haven refuelling berth at a cost of £6.00. Call 01590 677071.
Love Your Harbour
The Love Your Harbour campaign has been produced by Dorset Litter Free Coast, Natural England and Dorset Wildlife Trust. The campaign raises awareness of the issues around discharging toilet waste from boats and makes recommendations on how to dispose responsibly.
The key messages that the campaign wishes to get across are:
- If you love your harbour, don’t treat it like a bog.
- Discharging untreated sewage from a boat in a harbour is extremely damaging and antisocial.
- Contamination has adverse effects on bathing water quality, marine ecosystems including coastal wildlife and aquaculture production.
Lymington Harbour Commissioners support this campaign and encourage you to watch this short video clip. For more information you can also read their poster.
