East Norwalk Blue Takes Over Pump Out Program


East Norwalk Blue, Inc. is taking over the Soundkeeper  Pump Out Program. Officially kicking off on Memorial Day, ENB’s pump out boats will be on the water covering no-discharge areas from Darien to Bridgeport, CT between May and October.

Pending hire of a NY-based boat operator, pump out services will also be available between City Island and Mammaroneck, NY.

To schedule a pump out, contact East Norwalk Blue:

ENB’s free service is generously supported by a grant from the Federal Clean Vessel Act, which is administered by the US Fish & Wildlife Service and the CT Department of Environmental Protection and NY State Department of Environmental Conservation. The remainder of the program costs (25%!) are supported with funds from our membership and other generous donors. Our “clean boating” education and outreach activities are supported by the CT Department of Environmental Protection.

Additional support for the pumpout program has been provided by the following sources:

        • Woman’s Seamen’s Friend Society of Connecticut, Inc.
        • Northeast Utilities
        • Keyspan Energy
        • Town of Westport, CT
        • Village of Mamaroneck
