During last year's boating season, more than 1.3 million gallons of  recreational marine sewage was removed at pumpout facilities and through the pumpout vessel programs.  That's a record level and represents a 6.4 percent increase.  The sewage came from vessels on Candlewood Lake and Long Island Sound. To encourage proper disposal of sanitary waste from vessels, all Clean Vessel Act funded pumpout facilities in Connecticut are free to recreational boaters.
