Soundkeeper Pumpout Program passes 2,000 completions this season


Soundkeeper’s free mobile pumpout service for vessels in Long Island Sound has just completed 2,000 pumpouts and counting for this 2015 boating season!  The weather has been good and people have been out enjoying the Sound this summer, and our pumpout boats have been patrolling the coastal waters in in southwestern CT and southeastern NY, pumping out tanks from VHF hail downs and online requests.  Our pumpout boats generally remove approximately 40,000 gallons of waste a season from onboard tanks, ensuring an potential pollutant stream is kept from becoming an environmental hazard.  From Westport, CT to City Island, NY, and our operation of the Bridgeport, CT pumpout boat, Soundkeeper’s pumpout service works every season to keep the Sound clean, swimmable and fishable for all to enjoy.PO Boatss
