Poor water quality affects the health of Port Phillip and in turn the enjoyment of recreational boating and fishing activities on Port Phillip. Discharge of sewage and other waste from boats is prohibited, adds pollutants to our valuable waterways and poses a risk to marine ecosystems and human health. Use a holding tank for sewage and dispose of waste properly on land or use provided pump out facilities. Boat sewerage pump out systems are used designed for larger boats that have holding tanks. Sewerage hoppers are designed for boats that use a portable toilet.
