Boat sewage is a source of fecal bacteria in False Creek that harms the environment and puts public health at risk. In Canada, it's illegal to dump sewage from boats within three nautical miles of the shore.

Our Park Board marinas offer free pump-out services to all pleasure crafts in support of our water quality campaign – pump, don't dump.
