Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department (VTFW)
Grants to Vermont government and privately owned marinas, shipyards, and boatyards and state and local government organizations to construct, operate, renovate, and maintain pumpout stations for recreational vessels. Applicants must contact program staff prior to starting an application. Funding is intended for boating facilities that seek to install a new pumpout station or significantly improve an existing pumpout station and make it available to all boaters.
There are several different systems and the department recommends contacting a pumpout vendor to find out which pumpout is best for your business.
Under the Clean Vessel Act program, marinas are only allowed to charge $5 or less per pump if they receive Clean Vessel Act funds. Free pumpouts are strongly encouraged. Many marinas allow for free pumpouts with the fill-up of fuel or purchase of other services provided by the marina. Marinas can request to be reimbursed for 75 percent of their disposal fees in lieu of charging boaters for pumping fees. More information on reimbursements can be obtained by contacting the department.
