Discharge Zone


Town pump out boat offers a free service which is available weekends between Memorial Day and September 30. It can be contacted on VHF Channel 73.

Use them! We want to protect the life of our bay, and pumping raw sewage into the bay causes pollution, algae blooms, possible diseases for shellfish areas, and can close areas for swimming.

The following pump-outs are located in the Town of Southold:
  • Cutchogue Harbor Marina, Wickham Creek, Cutchogue
  • Brewer's Marina, Greenport
  • Sterling Harbor Marina, Greenport
  • Port of Egypt Marina, Southold
  • Brick Cove Marina

The costs for pumping out your boat varies. Some of the marinas have obtained grants from the state to pay for these facilities and it will only cost the boat owner a small fee. Others don't have the grants and the boat owners are charged a per gallon fee for pump out.

Please check with the marina for updated information.
